   The Russians have a clear and direct interest in blocking development of energy resources in the United States, because our increasing production of oil and gas through fracking is lowering prices for Russia’s oil and gas exports, which are clearly the sole basis for earning foreign exchange. Outside of weapons systems, Russia produces very few products that can win export markets.
   Russian-sponsored agents funneled money to U.S. environmental organizations in an attempt to portray energy companies in a negative way and disrupt domestic energy markets.
  Documents that the American social media companies produced for the Committee confirmed that Russian agents were exploiting American social media platforms in an effort to disrupt domestic energy markets, suppress research and development of fossil-fuels, and stymie efforts to expand the use of natural gas.
