|Description||The 3rd tranche of documents released as part of the Integrity Initiative Leak, on 13 December 2018.|
The third tranche of documents released as part of the Integrity Initiative Leak were published online on 13 December 2018.
In Ramping up IfS work 16 03 2018.pdf (after the Skripal Affair) Victor Madeira suggested that the IfS use its clusters to “Find ways to remove e.g. RT/Ruptly video and infographic content from mainstream media e.g. newspaper websites, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc. Such content is quite professionally done, entertaining and cheap (or even free) for cash-strapped mainstream media outlets. But for these reasons, this kind of content gets numerous ‘clicks’ and is therefore picked up by reputable outlets that help spread Russian disinformation.” 
The CND Gen list 2 contains "22 names with email addresses. Most of these individuals have no other connection with the Institute for Statecraft or the Integrity Initiative. The presence on this list of Pablo Miller and Howard Body suggests that this is a list for email updates or consultations on the Salisbury poisonings story."
