What makes you so sure they haven't already.

I would say, fair game.

Hacking and melding is a different story.

Funny how they quickly said they didn't do anything of that sort...

There's a Russian waiting under every bed, ready to get you.

If anybody tells you otherwise, they're a KGB agent.

Poor lil Putin. Why do the murderous dictators get blamed for everything?

I do not think it is just Russia. Probably all foreign nations would spy on other countries - both friends or foes. In the world politics, there is no such thing as constant allies or enemies, only common interests. Today's enemy could be tomorrow's ally and vice versa.

 Do you really expect the bunch of murderous thugs, called Western leaders, to take blame for their mistakes? Nah! There is a much better way! Lost an election? - blame Putin! Unable to fix your country? - blame Putin! Losing blood and treasure in aggressions overseas? - blame Putin!

So the Russians went after the French election too? Time to impeach Macron for collusion.

Nah Macron wasn't Don Putin's candidate, that was far right headbanger le Pen.

Leave the collusion to your boy Trump, Wulf.

It seems that Russia is spying on everyone. It makes me to think about strengthening my personal security on the Web. Everyone know about recently Wannacry virus attack not so long ago. It could steal your personal data and freeze the system (can be Russian 'toy', by the way). That's why it's always essential to use vpn or tor browser to secure the personal data. Personally I use vpn and double check my ip on 2ip to make sure that it's hidden.
