An observation on the Debbins affair:

Some American analysts commented on a whim that Debbins’ weird expositions to muddy the waters of cyber attribution did little damage. I would advise them to not jump the gun.

One of the major challenges of studying disinformation from a Western lens is that we/they see the intended targets as some sort of strategic monoliths. Sometimes, disinformation targets party A to influence party B or C. Chekists and operatives from breakaway Soviet states know better.
