Anti-Ukrainian propaganda on the internet

The Kremlin does not spare money for anti-Ukrainian propaganda on the internet.

On freelance exchange website Freelancehunt there has appeared an advertisement on recruitment of trolls to incite anti-Ukrainian dispute on new agency sites on the internet.

One of the chief tasks of trolls is to engage in debates on web sites and provoke other users.

The suggested topics for writing are: deterioration of living standards in Ukraine, the third Maidan revolution, pressure on Russian-speaking residents of Ukraine and punishment operation in Donbas.

All this should be written on the background of stories about improvement of life standards in Russia and Crimea.

Employers promise to provide ‘the introductory instruction’ and lists of sites in course of this so-called work.

They promise to pay for such work hourly, from 5 to 15 rubles ($ 0,08- $ 0,25) per post.

The authors of the published ad promise constant work, for at least 3 months.
