It looks like a farce and a clown: an ex-employee of the Russian "troll factory" told about his work

It looks like a farce and a clown: an ex-employee of the Russian "troll factory" told about his work

Former employee of the Russian "troll factory" Alan Baskaev, who worked in the company from November 2014 to April 2015, said that the work of trolls is similar to farce and clowning.

He stated this in an interview with the channel "Rain".

According to him, at the famous "factory of trolls" on Savushkin, 55 in St. Petersburg (Russian Federation) there is a foreign department specializing in working with American Internet users.

So, the staff of this department write comments on social networks and forums in English, dismissive of the "Russian department" and do not really believe in what they write on the Internet.

Basque said that for his work he received 50 thousand rubles a month and decided that "this is a great deal, despite the fact that conscience in it did not participate at all."

"I worked in American forums, 90% of them were devoted to politics, 10% were devoted to other things, but where is the" policy "section, - he said.

The former troll added that the "factory of trolls" has a strict internal procedure - everywhere the surveillance camera.

"There are monitored by all computers, by themselves, and there are cameras, which, perhaps, even sound record, but in this I have very big doubts, because so many times we listened to the anthem" IDIL "and greet each other with the words" Glory Ukraine, the heroes are glory ", which seems to me that there is no sound recording," said Baskaev.

According to him, in the American department, mostly young people, graduates and students worked in Russia, "some crazy people" in Russia, including schoolchildren and fans of Russian propagandist Dmytro Kyselyov.

Alan Baskaev confirmed that "factory of trolls" is directed by "friend of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin" Yevgeny Prigogine. But he knew him only as his boss, who paid him money. The man clarified that the work did not bring him pleasure, and he began to replace the harvested comments. When the boss saw it, he was released. He currently lives in Thailand, teaches Russian to local residents.

"All six months I worked there all looked like a farce and a clown, it was a postmodern real, Postmodern, Dadaism and Sur," he said.

Interpol rejected Russia’s request to arrest Hermitage Capital Management founder Bill Browder Source: https://en.censor.net.ua/n460699

Interpol rejected Russia’s request to arrest Hermitage Capit Bill Browder



It also told member states to ignore an attempt by Moscow to pursue the fund manager through the organization, Censor.NET reports citing Bloomberg.

Browder said Thursday that he'd received a letter from Interpol's Commission for the Control of Files, the body responsible for vetting data, informing him of its decision to dismiss Russia's request to put him on the organization's wanted list. It's the fifth time Interpol has blocked Russia's attempts to issue notices to arrest Browder, who has led a global campaign against Russia's human-rights abuses.

"The most important thing is that they informed all member states not to entertain any notices against me going forward from Russia," Browder said in an interview.

On Oct. 17, Russia named Browder in a "diffusion notice," which allows countries to temporarily bypass Interpol headquarters and unilaterally circulate requests for cooperation from other countries to arrest individuals before the organization can check for compliance. Browder, a British national since giving up his U.S. citizenship in 1998, was briefly barred from traveling to the U.S. and elsewhere as a result.

"A diffusion notice recently circulated in relation to Mr. Browder was found to be non-compliant following a review by the General Secretariat," Interpol said in an emailed statement. "All information in relation to this request has been deleted from Interpol's databases and all Interpol member countries informed accordingly."

Russia's prosecutor general said in August that it would continue to seek to have Browder put on the Interpol list because he was convicted in absentia by a Russian court of tax evasion and sentenced to nine years in prison.

Browder has led a campaign to persuade countries to adopt sanctions on Russian officials believed to be responsible for human rights abuses after the death of his legal and tax adviser Sergei Magnitsky in a Russian prison in 2009.

The latest attempt to use Interpol against Browder came after Canada last week became the latest country to pass a "Magnitsky Act," which imposes travel bans and asset freezes against individuals believed to be involved in human rights abuses in Russia.
