Opinion: What kind of Russian meddling?

Russian “meddling” in other countries is so much a part of our political discourse that it has become fodder for jokes. But what is behind this interference, and who is doing the interfering? Visions of a centralized command center in the Kremlin ignore the freestyle nature of Russian politics in the Putin era, where teams of players tussle like bulldogs under a rug. But now the world is the playing field, and spy hysteria may only make a bad situation worse.
