Russian hack and smear: a reply

Last week I became the target of a Russian hack-and-leak operation, with the pro-Russian website Grayzone as the delivery mechanism. I am a high-profile journalist, critical of the Putin regime, and of its supporters in the West. This smear campaign is the penalty.

I make no comment on the purportedly hacked contents other than to repeat that they may be edited, distorted or fake.
