The United States is nowhere close to deterring Russia from spreading fake news, disinformation, and propaganda through social media, or even convincing the American public that such a Kremlin campaign to drive wedges through society exists, a panel of “gray zone” warfare experts said Tuesday.

Jamie Fly, former foreign and national security adviser to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), said that, through social media, “for very little cost [Russia] can reach out to individual Americans” to sow distrust in the electoral process, create confusion in the political arena, possibly tamper with voting itself, and attack both sides on issues from National Football League players kneeling during the national anthem to Sen. John McCain’s “no vote” on repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Like France and Germany did to actively deter and respond to Moscow’s attempts to undermine their elections, Fly said “warnings (to the Kremlin) need to be specific” and “need to be repeated to the highest level” of Russian leadership, he said during a panel discussion at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C.
