This is the July 7, 2020 hearing on "Exposing and Demanding Accountability for Kremlin Crimes Abroad," held before the House Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, Energy, and the Environment of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the Opening Statement of William R. Keating: "[W]e are holding a hearing to discuss exposing and demanding accountability for Kremlin crimes abroad. Just over 1 week ago, news broke alleging that Russia had placed bounties on American troops in Afghanistan, that money changed hands between the GRU [Russian: Chief Intelligence Office], Russia's military intelligence, and the Taliban, that Americans were killed in connection with this scheme, and that our agencies have had this intelligence since last year. These allegations have shocked our conscience. But threats from Russia are far more pervasive than even these reports indicate. Russia's activity targeting Americans has been occurring before and is occurring now and, if left unchecked by the U.S., will continue occurring in the future." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel Fried, Michael McFaul, Kimberly Marten, and Vladimir Kara-Murza.
