Trolls Are Everywhere

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Deep inside a four-story marble building in St. Petersburg, hundreds of workers tap away at computers on the front lines of an information war, say those who have been inside. Known as "Kremlin trolls," the men and women work 12-hour shifts around the clock, flooding the Internet with propaganda aimed at stamping President Vladimir Putin's world vision on Russia, and the world.

Lyuda Savchuk, a single mother with two children, worked in the St. Petersburg "troll factory" until mid-March.
"I knew it was something bad, but of course I never suspected that it was this horrible and this large-scale," she said in an interview in her apartment, which has colorful drawings on the walls for her two preschool-age children.

This comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone. I just want to draw your attention to this woman, she is great. How can a person be so brave to fight the whole government all alone?! Good luck, Savchuk! You are awesome.
