Russia is trying to disrupt 2024 Paris Olympics, Microsoft says

PARIS - Russia is trying to undermine the 2024 Paris Olympics through disinformation campaigns that blend old propaganda tactics with artificial intelligence, according to Microsoft.

Microsoft's threat analysis center said in a report that the Kremlin's goals are to denigrate the reputation of the International Olympic Committee and create an expectation that violence will break out at the Paris Olympic Games, which will take place from July 26 to Aug. 11 in the French capital and in locations across France and its overseas territories.

Russia "seeks to spread public fear to deter spectators from attending the Games," wrote Clint Watts, general manager of Microsoft's Threat Analysis Center, in an accompanying blog post. The company warned that disinformation could intensify in the lead-up to the Opening Ceremonies.
