This is How Pro-Russia Trolls Manipulate Finns Online
“Hostile trolls distributing propaganda messages from the Russian leadership try to silence and mislead Finns and to manipulate the Finnish public discussion online according to the journalistic investigation of Kioski on pro-Russia trolls.
Pro-Russia trolling, in other words, aggressive online texts following the agenda of the Kremlin is everyday reality on many websites used by Finns. The distribution of false information supporting the information warfare waged by the Russian leadership has increased significantly after the Ukraine crisis escalated.
Kioski gathered information on pro-Russia trolling from several independent sources: experts, administrators of Finnish websites and Finns who have been targeted with trolling. In addition to this, our journalist followed the activity of secret profiles supporting the information warfare waged by the Russian leadership online for dozens of hours and was targeted by them, as well.”
