How to handle an online trolling attack

Russian trolls have launched a campaign of cyber attacks against the internet and other social media platforms, with a new hashtag online commenter magazine.

The Russian government-linked troll army is using the hashtag “Internet commentary” to target anyone who dares to criticize the government, including the opposition, the Russian government said in a statement.

The #InternetCommentary hashtag has since become a popular tool to spread propaganda in Russia, with one troll army using it to target Russian opposition figures and journalists, according to The New York Times.

The new campaign is targeting the Internet commentaries of former President Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, and opposition politician Mikhail Lesin, among others, the statement said.

The trolls are also using the hashtags “Internet freedom” and “Internet democracy” to spread disinformation, the Kremlin said.

According to the Kremlin, Russian troll army has launched over 30 cyberattacks against foreign websites and the Twitter-owned Instagram.

Internet commenters have also been targeted by Russian trolls, the report said.

A report by the International Institute for Strategic Studies said in March 2017 that Russian trolls launched cyberattacks in at least seven countries targeting journalists and journalists.

The Russian government has denied it was behind the attacks.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking in a televised address on Tuesday, blamed Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine for the attacks, saying they were aimed at undermining the legitimacy of Ukraine’s new government.

Putin also said Russia would respond to the Ukraine crisis with “all necessary measures.”
