Report about U.S. and Russian interference in elections

I am furious about Russia's actions during the previous United States election, mostly because I came to Canada from the United States and hate what Trump stands for.  On Sunday, I listened to Michael Enright's essay on the inherent hypocrisy in this condementation given the history of election interference by the United States.   I found the story interesting but found it one-sided--what about intervention by the former Soviet Union??  What about the other European powers?
