According to several American officials, the U.S. military blocked access to the Internet for the so-called Internet-research Agency, known as “troll factory,” which could have interfered in midterm elections in 2018, as The Washington Post reported.

“The law on budget allocations for national defence in 2019 says that four countries Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea are carrying out campaign against the U.S. Government or citizens in the cyber space, the U.S. Defence Minister might take some measures to protect the country,” the message says.

According to the news agency, the blockage was so effective that the workers of the factory complained to their administrators about disruptions in work.

According to the law, President Trump ordered the Defence Minister (Jim Mattis) to conduct operation against the Russian “troll factory.”
