BEX ALERT - UKRAINE’S SBU, BRITISH MEDIA, US THINK TANK: RUSSIA IS BEHIND “YELLOW VEST” PROTESTS IN FRANCE

The French Secretariat-General for National Defense and Security (SGDSN) is investigating rumors on Russia’s alleged meddling in the “Yellow Vest” movement, French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an interview with RTL.

Sputnik reported that the minister’s statement followed a Times newspaper report, citing citing an analysis carried out by New Knowledge, a cybersecurity company, that hundreds of allegedly Russia-linked Twitter accounts were presumably fueling the yellow vest rallies by posting pictures of injured protesters and retweeting posts connected to the unrest.

In addition, according to the Alliance for Securing Democracy, about 600 Twitter accounts allegedly linked to the Kremlin have begun focusing on France, boosting their use of the hashtag #giletsjaunes.
