OSCE declines to comment on Hackers Data on UK integrity initiative project

Vienna, Nov 24 (Sputnik) The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) declined from commenting to Sputnik on Saturday on leaked documents on the UK Integrity Initiative project, which might have been used by London to meddle in European countries' internal affairs.
On Friday, The Anonymous international hacktivist group announced the discovery of documents that shed light on the activities of the Integrity Initiative covert operation. According to Anonymous, the stated goal of the project is to "counteract Russian propaganda," while the Integrity Initiative's list of participants includes Bill Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, and Vladimir Ashurkov, an associate of Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny.
"As an intergovernmental organization of 57 participating States, including the UK, the European countries, Canada and US, the OSCE cannot comment on statements made by informal groups or individuals," the press service said.
The project’s documents leaked by the hackers showed that the Integrity Initiative had received funding from the US State Department, NATO and Facebook.
Asked to comment on the Anonymous hacktivist group, a spokesperson of the UK Foreign Office told Sputnik that the information about the Integrity Initiative project had already been available for the public, while London is happy for the program to receive "greater exposure."
