NARA's 18-Page FBI File on 'Russia Today' Declassified

The FOIA I filed with the FBI in January requested all records pertaining to the Kremlin's propaganda arm Russia Today, was for any materials from January 2000 through the present.

The FBI said it couldn't confirm or deny existence of any responsive records and if they existed, they'd be at the National Archives and Records Administration.

Last week, NARA emailed me an 18-page file containing files from the 1940s through 1960s. Noting after that.

Are there really no pertinent Russia Today files in the FBI vault?

Here are the page of the old records and the NARA letter: "I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information Act request for records in the custody of the National Archives and Records Administration. Your request was received in this office on February 6, 2017 and assigned FOIA case number 52164.

"You request access to FBI case file 100-HQ-330063, subsequently identified as responsive to your request for records concerning Russia Today. "I have completed a line-by-line review of FBI case file 100-HQ-330063 and released the information in full. As the file contained a small number of pages, I have attached a complimentary copy to this correspondence.

"You may contact me at (301) 837-0774 or if you have any further questions regarding FOIA case number 52164.

"This concludes the processing of your request."
