Kremlin trolls burned across the Internet as Washington debated options
« Reply #2050 on: December 25, 2017, 03:51:27 PM »
For those that do want to understand the Russian tactics today's articles explain a lot.


Kremlin trolls burned across the Internet as Washington debated options

The first email arrived in the inbox of CounterPunch, a left-leaning American news and opinion website, at 3:26 a.m. — the middle of the day in Moscow.

“Hello, my name is Alice Donovan and I’m a beginner freelance journalist,” read the Feb. 26, 2016 message.

The FBI was tracking Donovan as part of a months-long counterintelligence operation code-named “NorthernNight.” Internal bureau reports described her as a pseudonymous foot soldier in an army of Kremlin-led trolls seeking to undermine America’s democratic institutions.

Her first articles as a freelancer for CounterPunch and at least 10 other online publications weren’t especially political. As the 2016 presidential election heated up, Donovan’s message shifted. Increasingly, she seemed to be doing the Kremlin’s bidding by stoking discontent toward Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and touting WikiLeaks, which U.S. officials say was a tool of Russia’s broad influence operation to affect the presidential race.

“There’s no denying the emails that Julian Assange has picked up from inside the Democratic Party are real,” she wrote in August 2016 for a website called We Are Change. “The emails have exposed Hillary Clinton in a major way — and almost no one is reporting on it.”

Russian trolls work space threefold in 2018
« Reply #2051 on: January 10, 2018, 01:16:32 AM »
Looks like they are being rewarded !
It does illustrate the importance( to Russia) being placed on spewing garbage messages of the Kremlin !
One would have thought that after all the direct exposure over last few years it would have "disappeared" a little !


Russian troll factory expands its work space threefold in 2018


The infamous Russian troll factory also known as Internet Research Agency (IRA) has been reportedly run by Putin’s ally Yevgeny Prigozhin in the Russian city of Saint-Petersburg. Fow years, the agency has been pushing pro-Russian narratives to promote the Kremlin’s interests in the world attempting to influence domestic policy and public opinion in the E.U., U.S.A., Ukraine, and other countries, or just supporting opposite extreme opinions to sow chaos in target countries.  To achieve its goals, the troll factory employed fake accounts registered on major social networks, online media sites, and on video hosting services. And now it looks like the factory is far from set to be closed in the New Year and its employees would even have better working conditions in 2018

This thread has proven very useful in understanding how Russia has sort to influence and disrupt the world at large. It has taken time for the level of threat to be recognised.



A list of about 1,000 Lithuanian civic activists had been recently published on a Russian website. Among those listed, there were many who fight Kremlin propaganda. In retaliation, the patriotic Lithuanian activists launched their own online database of “Russian trolls” in Lithuania.hat threat to be recognised.



Baltic “elves” launch online database of pro-Russian trolls to tackle propaganda

The Ukrainian Myrotvorets Center which lists online tens of thousands of those “whose actions have signs of crimes against the national security of Ukraine, peace, human security, and the international law” has welcomed the “Lithuanian nationalists” (as they were labeled in a quoted report by a Russian propaganda media outlet) in regard to launching the Vatnikas project and offered its help.

“Few in the West understand,” the Russian commentator writes, “what the world is dealing with in the form of the Putin regime and its information arm;” and because of that, they commit “two principled and fatal” mistakes reflecting their willingness to take the claims of Moscow’s representatives at face value.

Most people in the West make two fatal mistakes about Moscow ‘media,’


“In Putin’s Russia,” however, “there is no such ideology and no image of the future. There are not and cannot be any books entitled ‘Putinism.’ The Putin media simply destroys the foundations of all norms, moral, legal and scientific. It simply sows hatred, lies, crudities and provocations.”

Certainly this is true for the LOST country of Ukraine or should I say "the Ukraine"?  Ukraine and it's supporters are quite happy to argue about articles, whereas is the future is just some kind of oblivion.  Don't worry, we are doing quite well under the massive Putin misinformation campaign.  While we are all massively oppressed here in Russia, we continue to look forward to the continuing progress here.  Maybe there will even be a day when the Ukrainian mensheviks lose their sway and the majority can get back to peace with Russia.

1. The Honeymoon Stage
The first stage of culture shock is often overwhelmingly positive during which travelers become infatuated with the language, people and food in their new surroundings. At this stage, the trip or move seems like the greatest decision ever made, an exciting adventure to stay on forever.

At some point you'll wake up.

The honeymoon ended long ago and I'm overcompensating for obvious reasons.

So you know the true reality of Putin and the state of the Russian media but you're lying to make an impression.

Russia’s Full Spectrum Propaganda
« Reply #2058 on: January 23, 2018, 05:24:37 PM »

The importance of understanding how Russia is influencing( & distorting) so many cannot be underestimated --or ignored.
The detail here- a case study example- is very interesting to follow.


Russia’s Full Spectrum Propaganda
A case study in how Russia’s propaganda machine works


The Russian government’s propaganda and influence operations use a full spectrum model which spans social and traditional media.

Some of the channels it uses are overt and official; others are covert and claim to be independent. They all work together to create the appearance of multiple voices and points of view, masking a coordinated approach
