Belling the cat: Russian cyber warfare

You may or may not know about “Bellingcat.” An independent investigative association based in Leicester, England,  Bellingcat (name derived from the fabled question: “But who will bell the cat?”) has been for several years pursuing and reporting on clandestine Russian operations to undermine Western democracy, by carrying out weaponized cyber-hacking, spying, assassinations and other criminal acts around the world.
