Briefing note on the Integrity Initiative
Paul McKeigue, David Miller, Jake Mason, Piers Robinson

1 Summary

The activities of the Integrity Initiative include:

setting up covert networks ("clusters") of journalists, academics and military/foreign service StratCom practitioners in each country including the UK: "The programme has begun to create a critical mass of individuals from across society (think tanks, academia, politics, the media, government and the military) whose work is proving to be mutually reinforcing."

covert manipulation of the public sphere, including campaigns to smear and suppress dissenters and block their appointment to public office. The "silencing of pro-Kremlin voices on Serbian TV" is listed as an "achievement".

overt attacks on British politicians, academics and other critics of UK government policies, most notably on the Leader of the Opposition and his staff.

in the Baltic states and Ukraine, working closely with organizations and governments that foment hatred of ethnic Russian minorities and encourage Holocaust revisionism.

promotion of a hate campaign against the Russian Orthodox Church in the Balkans.

These activities:

Some of you people will believe anything

FYI there was a question raised in the HoC by Emily Thornberry which was responded to by Sir Ian Duncan

"The Minister claimed that "recent reports that Foreign Office funding has been used to support party political activity in the UK are therefore wholly untrue."

Won't stop some of you idiots carrying on about it though will it?

Learn to read you Tory pig.

The foreign office has now admitted providing £1.96m of public money to the Institute for Statecraft’s Integrity Initiative in the 2018/19 year. Military specialists run the unit, which has posted smears about Jeremy Corbyn and his team on social media.

So he didn't say they hadn't/don't fund the Integrity Initiative then mungo.

They were denying funding an attack on Labour but they admitted funding the Integrity Initiative and the Integrity Initiative has been shown to be behind the attacks on Labour.

They might not have given them the money to do that, it was just a coincidence because, of course, funding attacks on Labour with tax payers money is against the rules...

Or you could read this:

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Integrity Initiative:Written question - 196177

In financial year 2017/18, the FCO funded the Institute for Statecraft's Integrity Initiative £296,500. This financial year, the FCO is funding a further £1,961,000. Both have been funded through grant agreements.
