One Rule for Britannia? UK’s new post-Brexit ‘global’ fund is a front for meddling in Russia’s politics, leaked documents reveal

Building a shadowy network of NGOs, charities and other umbrella organizations abroad has been identified as a key part of the UK’s strategy to reshape the world in its own image, a new tranche of leaked documents has revealed.

In the wake of the landmark Brexit referendum in 2016, the UK government launched the opaque ‘Global Britain Fund’. Questions around the size of its budget, objectives, which projects it bankrolls and where, and other key questions have remained unanswered since.

It was only two years later that then-Foreign Office minister Alan Duncan brought up the Fund in parliament for the first time in response to a question from the opposition Labour party, sparingly stating that it supports projects overseas that provide “short-term support for small-scale tactical interventions to enable wider foreign policy objectives.”
