Since I've been on Twitter, I've blocked 25,000 Kremlin Trolls. The main purpose for them to be trolling is to spread misinformation about things like the US, Ukraine's government. The big problem is, many people fall for it, as they're too narrow-minded and won't spend the time to find out on their own if they're facts or fabrication. So they fall for what is told to them from weakness.

MANY Americans are actually Kremlin Trolls. I've also run into some Canadians and Brits that also troll for the Kremlin. Anthony Van Der Craats is one of the first I found out was a troll, from Australia and the UK which lived for a while in Kharkiv, Ukraine. And he's still at it.

Trolls will trash people like Obama, Poroshenko, the US government along with the Ukrainian government. Some are very slick as the one I met which lived in Canada. He wouldn't come out and say it, but he'd bash Poroshenko, Obama till the cows came home. I saw who he was following and it was finally obvious he was a troll.

VERY IMPORTANT: Kremlin Trolls make a living every time someone replies to their tweets. So if you're trying to win a battle by disputing with one of them, you're helping them make a living, to continue doing what they're doing. Remember, some of these scumbags are slick, so don't let them rear you into a dispute you won't win. Don't support their way of life. At the same time, you'll be assisting Putin accomplish what he wants to, within the western democratic countries. You won't miss them, so BLOCK them. ASAP.

A good way of identifying a Kremlin Troll by their username. It'll usually include many mixed numbers like, Joe 234345. Many will be Americans and some from eastern Europe will even use American names. Here are some good examples. And many are popping up being Trump supporters:


Sally Shagger

Cynthia StillBB This one you'll freak on. American to the bone.

real Sam Handwich

Doug Smith Here's a real American winner, if he is one.

If we don't block this tralier trash, they'll continue to ruin people's minds that don't any better. It's like people that bow to Trump. As you can see a couple of these. They're Trump supporters. So imagine how many are there out in your neck of the woods. Do what's right and block them, for the sake of the truth.

In Russia believe that the former head of the Kremlin administration could replace Medvedev

Russian journalist named several reasons for dismissal Ivanov administration and the appointment of his Special Representative of Russian President on ecology and environmental performance of transport.

The former head of the Russian presidential administration Sergei Ivanov could leave his post to take revenge in a political struggle with the current prime minister Dmitry Medvedev.

The broadcast of the public told a journalist of Russian newspaper "Vremya nastojashchee" Timur Olyevskyy.

"This reshuffle, a spare cell for Ivanov, who in 2008 was one of the contenders for the post of President Putin's successor. But then he lost the fight hardware in the personnel Medvedev. Perhaps now, Ivanov can not just take and replace Medvedev at the post. First, elections soon and the election should not be personnel changes, and secondly, it is too open incitement two strong politicians ", - said Olyevskyy.

"After spending a little Special Representative on environmental protection, Medvedev poohoronyaye it from a distance and then, when the election is over, will be deputy prime minister of Russia on power block with an opportunity to increase positions of Medvedev.

"He's tired and wants to go to some honorable position, so that's meaningless. The personal tragedy (the death of his son in 2014, the year - Ed.), He experienced a difficult and asked Putin then that let me 4 years and please release. And so he was released. Resignation it or fulcrum for the future of take-off, I think it will be clear at the end of September, when elections are held, "- said Olyevskiy. In Ukrainian/український
