    Russian troll agency

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/07/ma...ency.html?_r=0
    Good thing there are such people as Lyudmila Savchuk! She is working hard to battle against those Russians trolls who are able to do everything to justify bloody Putin foreign policy! She must be hired by CIA to battle that Russian propaganda which conquered everything in American media! Good Job, Savchuk, I hope you will succeed!

    Re: Russian troll agency



    Russian troll factory (Internet Research Agency) at 55 Savushkina Street, St Petersburg. Up to 400 employees work in 12 hour shifts 24/7 to post propaganda on Russian/foreign news sites, blogs, social networks, and message boards. Thousands of photo-shopped images are available to the trolls on dozens of webpages like this one ... ??????.??




    Lyudmila Savchuk (above with lawyers) a former employee of Internet Research Agency who quit in disgust and is suing for illegal hiring and employment practices. In court last week a lawyer for Internet Research Agency agreed to pay compensation to Ms. Savchuck, but she says her ultimate aim is to force the troll factory to close.

    Re: Russian troll agency

    I wonder if this is the agency responsible for pointing out that British claims to the Falklands are not as legitimate as Russian claims to Crimea?

    One Professional Russian Troll Tells All



    Another former Internet Research Agency employee - Marat Burkhard -
    says he was ordered by supervisors to refer to Obama as a black monkey.
    He also quit in disgust after two months.

    I don't know and I guess you don't know.

    Whoever pointed out the obvious hypocritical conflict between "claimed ownership" for Falklands and Crimea most certainly did bring up an interesting point, eh?

    Not to derail, but it is good to compare the two. Which is a more legitimate claim? Are the principles of the Monroe Doctrine applicable in several cases?

    The British. There wasn't a single Argentinian on the Falklands before their invasion and the British had held those Islands since 1774. Given there was no Argentina till it declared independence from Spain in 1816. I think thats a pretty solid claim. These Islands were uninhabited until opened up by European powers in the 16th century. Russia on the other hand is simply engaging in reconquest of land it had ceded the Ukraine and then guaranteed by treaty in 1994

    Let's see, is that 1994 treaty the same one in which the US said NATO would encroach NO FARTHER to the east....?

    So then, are we agreeing that the British claim to the Falklands is less legitimate than the Russian claim to Crimea?

    I don't think there are such massive SPAM factories in other countries. It is Russia, whose strategic objective is to fill all Internet discussion forums with so much inane sh!t that meaningful Internet discussions cease to exist. It is hard time for free net. We must stop it.
