According to a newly unclassified expert report [i] released in May by the Strategic Multilayer Assessment (SMA) program, funded by the US Defense Department, “Russia is beating the US in the race for global influence.”  Even though the study does not reflect the official position of either the Pentagon or the US government, it was prepared for the US Joint Chiefs of Staff. According to the authors, the United States still underestimates Russia’s growing influence "on public opinion in Europe, Central Asia, Africa and Latin America."
