Russian "troll factories" used US startups to intervene in US elections

on Sat Oct 20, 2018 12:42 pm
Russian "troll factories" used US startups to intervene in US elections



With the help of American Internet services, "trolls" hid the sources of messages that were distributed on the networks.

The Internet Research Agency, associated with businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, who was accused of interfering in the US presidential election, actively used the services of American startups to spread messages in social networks. About it, as the Censor.NET reports, the agency Bloomberg. His staff analyzed Twitter's database of suspected interference with accounts.

Among them - services from RoundTeam, Dlvr.it and IFTTT. To them, the Internet Research Agency (also known as the "troll factory") succeeded after the 2016 presidential election, mostly in the first half of 2017.

Last, IFTTT, in particular, allows you to distribute messages in several social networks simultaneously, which was used to conceal the source of messages. The distributed publications contained hyperlinks to third-party resources that, according to published Twitter data, are no longer available for viewing.

At IFTTT Inc. told the agency Bloomberg, which will check the data received from Twitter and will try to minimize potential abuse of the system.

Recall that on the eve of the US Justice Ministry accused the citizen of Russia, Olen Husseinov, in organizing and financing a conspiracy to intervene in the US elections in 2016 and scheduled for November 6, 2018, an interim election. According to investigators, Husaynova was an accountant of the so-called "factory of trolls", whose staff warmed up the mood of Americans on the Internet. In the United States, they say that this "troll factory" worked not only on American audiences. She also conducted propaganda in Internet segments of Europe and Ukraine.

The Foreign Ministry of Russia reacted to the charges, saying that it was just an excuse for introducing new sanctions, and promised a "rigid answer".

The agency blames Washington for lies and promises a "hardback".

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov considered US accused of accusing Russian woman Helen Husseinov as an attempt to fabricate a reason for imposing sanctions on Russia, reports Censor. NET with reference to Interfax.

"The US authorities, while continuing to intimidate their own and the world community," Russian hackers and bloggers, "accused another Russian citizen of attempting to influence the mood of American voters. More than two years since the last presidential election, spreading a dishonest lie about the mythical" hands of Moscow" Washington is now trying to play the same card on the eve of the US election day (on November 6, Americans will re-elect their Congress), "says Ryabkov's commentary, circulated by the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday.

According to Ryabkov, "Washington is fabricating an excuse to once again apply its proverbial sanctions against our country."

He emphasizes that "the US is clearly overestimating its own capabilities. By showing hostility towards Russia and contemptuously treating the whole world, they will only get a tougher rebuff."

On the eve of the US Justice Ministry, the Russian citizen accused Alen Husseinov of organizing and financing a conspiracy to intervene in the US elections in 2016 and in mid-term elections scheduled for November 6, 2018. According to investigators, Husaynova was an accountant of the so-called "factory of trolls", whose staff warmed up the mood of Americans on the Internet. In the US, they say that this "troll factory" worked not only on American audiences. She also conducted propaganda in Internet segments of Europe and Ukraine.

At the same time, the Synod of the ROC decided to suspend co-ordination with the hierarchs of the Patriarchate of Constantinople and to stop its participation in the structures where its representatives presided. And do not mention more of the Patriarch of Constantinople during the liturgy.

On Monday, October 15, the Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church recognized that its further stay in the Eucharistic communion with the Constantinople Patriarchate was impossible.

Vladislav Roslyakov, who was suspected of mass murder in a college in the occupied Kerch, was in medical examination at the Kerch Psychoneurological Dispensary before obtaining permission for a weapon. The psychiatrist assured that the adolescent was healthy.

This is reported by Russian "Novaya Gazeta", reports Censor.NET.

Roslyakova examined the district psychiatrist Stanislav Bulayenko. He said that at the time of the examination, the teenager seemed to him a "healthy normal person".

"Yes, he went through a commission, but you know how many of them are there, and I say: he was healthy." I said: if he was sick, I would not give him a certificate! "So he fell ill later on," the psychiatrist said.

Roslyakova is buried after conducting all examinations.

Recall, the 18-year-old student of the college, Vladislav Roslyakov, made an explosion on October 17 and opened a gun shooting at a polytechnic college, after which he committed suicide. The victims of the tragedy were 21 people, including the arrow. In addition, 46 people with wounds of varying severity are in health care facilities.

The Russian occupation authorities initially opened the case under the article "terrorist attack", but later re-qualified it for the article "murder."

The Crimean Prosecutor's Office opened a criminal investigation under the article "terrorist attack".

Three-day mourning was announced on October 18 in the occupied Crimea.

The day before in Kerch, they said goodbye to the dead during the attack.

Russia, Iran and China are trying to influence the Congressional elections, the US secret services

The US government said on Friday that Russia, China and Iran were seeking to influence the interim congressional elections in November, while the Justice Ministry accused Russians of participating in such a scheme

The Washington Post reports.

"The operations of these countries are aimed at using mass media and social networks to promote misinformation and advertising in order to increase discrepancies in American society," the statement said in a joint statement of 4 special services and law enforcement agencies.

"External interference with the US elections is a threat to our democracy. Identifying and preventing this intervention is our top priority," said the National Intelligence Agency, the Ministry of Justice, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

The departments stated that they currently have no evidence of a violation of infrastructure that could be used to undermine the voting process and change the results, but this does not mean that these threats do not exist.

As reported, the US Department of Justice has accused 44-year-old Russians Olena Husyanov of organizing a conspiracy to intervene in an interim US Congressional election that will take place in November 2018.

The US Department of Justice states that Husyanova worked as the chief accountant in the Lakhta project, funded by Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin and two companies controlled by him, Concord Management and Concord Catering.

The department believes that Russian controlled financial documents on expenses for activities in the United States, including the work of activists, advertising in social networks, domain registration and promotion of news in social networks.

As it was reported, Russia is trying to complicate the lives of all Americans, says Pompeo.

US is preparing to withdraw from the Fact Sheet



When it succeeds, it will become the second European country after Romania to buy such a complex.

Poland has filed an official request to buy a powerful missile system in the United States, Censor said.NET with reference to Voice of America.

According to the declaration of the Ministry of Defense of Poland of October 19, the country sent a letter to the United States requesting the purchase of a high-powered artillery missile system M142 or HIMARS.

The country said in July that it plans to accelerate the procurement of the system.

Poland planned to purchase the Lockheed Martin manufacturing system from 2015 onwards, however, initial co-production plans faced obstacles in the negotiations.

This summer, the country announced its decision to purchase the HIMARS system from the US government through direct military procurement, just as Romania did earlier this year.

Romania became the first Eastern European country to acquire HIMARS. Poland will be the second.

Both countries, like the rest of Eastern Europe, are working to strengthen air defense in order to contain Russia's aggression in the region after the illegal annexation of the Crimea by Russia.

The State Department in November 2017 granted permits for a possible sale of 56 launchers HIMARS for a total of $250 million.

Poland has also signed an agreement this year to purchase the Patriot defense system in the United States.
