Russian Internet trolls are again trying to intervene in the political campaign in the United States. At this time, the presidential elections in 2020 were targeted, Bloomberg reported, citing US cyber security experts. To influence this campaign, the trolls, according to the agency interlocutors, change their strategy. Instead of creating content on their own, they began to intensify political differences in social networks using entries from fake accounts, experts say.
Among those who, during the new campaign in the United States, may try to circumvent Facebook and Twitter’s security measures to find and remove counterfeit content introduced after the presidential elections of 2016, experts call representatives of the St. Petersburg Internet Research Agency (more commonly known as the “troll factory”).
“We see that instead of creating content on their own, they [the trolls] reinforce the significance of [existing] content,” said operational information analyst for FireEye Inc. John Hultquist (organization specializes in providing network security solutions and services). In this case, theses offered by the trolls will not necessarily be unreliable and will fall under the restrictions imposed by Facebook and Twitter, he specified. This, the expert believes, “gives them the opportunity to hide behind someone else.”
Briefly about the main thing …
Deny insurance pension to Russian citizens
The Russian Pension Fund may lawfully refuse citizens of Russia in the insurance pension. To receive social benefits, people need to fulfill three conditions.
The first item is the accumulation of seniority. Now the minimum period is 15 years, but now the transition period is continuing. In 2019, a citizen needs to accumulate 10 years, in the next 11 years, and by 2025 at least 15 years. A resident of the Russian Federation may lose his pension because of his employer, who did not deduct insurance premiums for the minimum period of work experience.
Has the right to refuse to pay the pension fund due to the lack of an adequate number of pension points. Under current law, potential retirees should score at least 30 points before going on vacation. During the transition period, their minimum number is reduced, but it is increasing every year: in 2019, 16.2 points, and by 2025, 30 points.
May reject pension fund to people who worked in areas equivalent to the Far North. The reason is the vacation period at their own expense. These days are not counted in the experience, so citizens will have to rely only on social retirement, having lost hope for insurance.
