Thirteen Russians charged with US election meddling as shocking detail of allegations is laid bare

Post by Didge on Sat Feb 17, 2018 9:13 am

The full scale of alleged Russian election meddling has been revealed as 13 people were charged and their alleged crimes recounted in remarkable detail.

The Russians worked for the Internet Research Agency, a pro-Kremlin troll factory in St Petersburg, and were accused of using social media to undermine the 2016 American election.

A 37-page indictment produced by the team of Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the investigation, gives the fullest ever account of alleged Russian interference.

It describes how Russian agents created hundreds of social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to influence the election.

Some accounts were created through US internet servers and made to look like they were run by American political activists rather than Russians, according to US prosecutors.
