H.R. 7311 would direct the Department of State, within 90 days of the bill’s enactment, to develop a strategy for countering Russian efforts to undermine democratic institutions in Africa. The bill would require the Secretary of State to report on the implementation of this plan on an annual basis for the following five years beginning 180 days after enactment of H.R. 7311. The bill also would direct the agency to provide, in each annual report, a survey of similar initiatives undertaken by foreign entities and detailed intelligence on the identity of local actors complicit in Russian activities.
