What I’m Reading: The Mueller Report – 27 in a series – “The first form of Russian election influence…”

August 9th, 2019

“The first form of Russian election influence came principally from the Internet Research Agency, LLC (IRA), a Russian organization funded by Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin and companies he controlled, including Concord Management and Consulting LLC and Concord Catering (collectively “Concord”).2 The IRA conducted social media operations targeted at large U.S. audiences with the goal of sowing discord in the U.S. political system.3 These operations constituted “active measures” (), a term that typically refers to operations conducted by Russian security services aimed at influencing the course of international affairs.4”

Excerpt From The Mueller Report: Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election

“By the end of the 2016 U.S. election, the IRA had the ability to reach millions of U.S. persons through their social media accounts. Multiple IRA-controlled Facebook groups and Instagram accounts had “hundreds of thousands of U.S. participants.”
