The Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray, said Tuesday that Russia is determined to intervene in the US elections despite sanctions and other efforts to deter such actions before the presidential elections in 2020.

“The Russians are definitely determined to try to interfere in our elections,” Wray told a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

Wray spoke at the hearing a day before testimony by private investigator Robert Mueller before Congress in a public hearing about his two-year investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to sway Donald Trump.

“Is everything that we have done against the Russians not deterred enough? Are all the sanctions and all the talk still in their position?” asked Republican Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham. “Yes, my opinion is that until they stop, they do not deter enough”.

Mueller’s investigation revealed a broad campaign of electronic piracy and publicity during the 2016 elections that would have brought US charges against 25 Russia and three Russian companies.
