Why is the full spectrum of Russian influence operations not covered?

Since the begin­ning of Rus­si­a’s war on Ukraine, the intel­li­gence flow on Russ­ian influ­ence oper­a­tions has become a tidal wave that is impos­si­ble for GIOR to cov­er prop­er­ly, giv­en our avail­able resources. Since there are many oth­er groups that are already cov­er­ing these Russ­ian oper­a­tions, we made the deci­sion to nar­row the scope of our Rus­sia cov­er­age in order to pro­vide what we believe to be some­thing unique. The Glob­al Influ­ence Oper­a­tions Report (GIOR) appears to be the only exist­ing resource pro­vid­ing dai­ly intel­li­gence on the Glob­al Nation­al Con­ser­v­a­tive Alliance, an inter­na­tion­al net­work cen­tered on nation­al sov­er­eign­ty, cul­tur­al iden­ti­ty, and oppo­si­tion to glob­al institutions.
