Russia and USAID.

On Wednesday, Russia asked the United States Agency for International Development  (USAID) to leave the country. First, I’m not a journalist, but I feel that I should disclose that USAID funded a project I worked on.

The short version of this story is: the US says (USAID website) that in Russia USAID funds programs that

improve public health and combat infectious diseases, protect the environment, develop a stronger civil society, and modernize their economy.

The Russian government says (RT story) that USAID is seeking to

influence the political process, including elections at various levels and civil society.
