I do agree that loss control can be improved, that advancements in risk adjusting can keep existing claims from blowing up, and that technology can make insurance less expensive to write - resulting in a more efficient risk transfer for the insured. But I really doubt insurers will be earning profits north of 90%.
And Russians don't engage in trying to influence American opinion toward politicians and social change.
