An arsonist reportedly set fire to the offices of the Internet Research Agency, a pro-Trump internet troll factory in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The troll factory is reportedly run by Yevgeny Prigozhin, who has been indicted on charges of defrauding the U.S. government by interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
The Moscow Times notes that “an unknown suspect” broke into the first floor of the Russian intelligence operation “and threw a Molotov cocktail inside.”
Federal News Agency, a media site run by the troll factory, posted surveillance footage of the incident.
Operative Yevgeny Zubarev stated:
We’re most often attacked online, but these types of attacks have already taken place offline.
There was reportedly another arson attack preceding Russian President Vladimir Putin’s rigged re-election in March.
