Russia is already spreading disinformation in an attempt to influence next year's US mid-term elections: Joe Biden said this while visiting the headquarters of the National Intelligence Directorate, calling Vladimir Putin a threat.
"He knows he is in trouble and that makes it even more dangerous," Biden said, adding that cyber attacks could one day "trigger a real armed conflict."
Biden has appointed Mark Gitenstein as US ambassador to the European Union. Gitenstein, who under the Obama administration was ambassador to Romania, is 74 years old and in recent decades has worked a lot on projects concerning Central and Eastern Europe, as explained by the White House, especially on the front of the fight against corruption. In 2008, he presided over Senator Biden's transition to vice-presidency.
