On January 10, 2019, the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Oslo released a statement on Facebook reiterating erroneous claims that the Government of Norway funded the Atlantic Council report, The Kremlin’s Trojan Horses 3. The embassy claimed that the author of the report’s Norwegian chapter, Øystein Bogen, was “generously sponsored by Norwegian state agencies, most notably the Norwegian Ministry of Defense.” These claims are untrue and unsubstantiated.

As noted, The Kremlin’s Trojan Horses 3 is written and published in accordance with Atlantic Council Policy on Intellectual Independence. The authors are solely responsible for its analysis and recommendations. The Atlantic Council and its donors do not determine, nor do they necessarily endorse or advocate for, any of this report’s conclusions.
