"We want to reiterate, however, that the Government has not seen evidence of successful use of disinformation by foreign actors, including Russia, to influence UK democratic processes. But we are not being complacent and the Government is actively engaging with partners to develop robust policies to tackle this issue," the cabinet said.
The committee said in its report that in November 2017 UK Prime Minister Theresa May accused Russia of "sustained campaign of cyber espionage and disruption", including meddling in elections.
May accused Russia of publishing fake news and photo-shopped images in order to "sow discord" in the West and "undermine" democratic institutions. The committee said in its report that Russia had promulgated at least 38 "false disinformation narratives" related to the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the UK city of Salisbury, which the UK government held Moscow responsible for.
