U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement regarding the Pentagon’s public disclosure that, in the past 24-hours, Russia has increased its online troll activity by 2000%.

"Americans need to understand that the wars of the future will look more like this: Russia is investing significant resources to create propaganda and disinformation. Kinetic, cyber, and information contests will overlap more and more in the coming years. The fog of war will not be limited to our situation rooms and battlefields; our enemies will work to create confusion and distrust among Americans here at home."
