Russia wants Britain out of the EU.  Russia meddles in elections.  Did Russia meddle in Brexit?

If so, does May change her opinion about forcing Britain out of the EU?

Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia

You can look in the edit history yourself, this Wiki article has existed in basically the same form and content for nearly 10 years.

In Foundations of Geopolitics, Dugin calls for the influence of the United States and Atlanticism to lose its influence in Eurasia and for Russia to rebuild its influence through annexations and alliances.

The book declares that "the battle for the world rule of [ethnic] Russians" has not ended and Russia remains "the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution". The Eurasian Empire will be constructed "on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control of the USA, and the refusal to allow liberal values to dominate us."

Military operations play relatively little role. The textbook believes in a sophisticated program of subversion, destabilization, and disinformation spearheaded by the Russian special services. The operations should be assisted by a tough, hard-headed utilization of Russia's gas, oil, and natural resources to bully and pressure other countries.
In the section on Europe in particular, it explicitly calls out:

  • The United Kingdom should be cut off from Europe.
I don't think there is any question that Russia was directly involved in helping push this movement along (as well as similar far-right movements across Europe and in America). They've known they cannot win on the battlefield for a long time now, and instead of throwing the towel in they came up with new ways to fight.

Of course they did.

No.  May will not change her opinion.

Don't we already have a Brexit thread?
