BookmarkSAN FRANCISCO: A group believed to be Russian has remained active on internet services favoured by far-right Americans, showing efforts to interfere in US politics continue after the election, according to reports from social media research firm Graphika and nonprofit Advance Democracy Inc.

The group, which Graphika also believes to be connected to the Russian government, runs at least 20 accounts on a new version of an internet bulletin board once known as TheDonald, in reference to former president Donald Trump. Discussion site Reddit banned the forum last year, saying it encouraged violence against public officials.

The accounts also posted cartoons and comments that falsely accuse President Joe Biden, a Democrat, of paedophilia and senility. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the postings.Graphika said 16 times in March and April, Patriots.win accounts posted the same cartoons as accounts the firm was already tracking on Gab, a site popular with white supremacists. Neither Gab's top executive nor a group of Patriots.win moderators responded to Reuters questions about the accounts.

Identical postings from Patriots.win and Gab were still visible last week, though Reuters could not independently establish they were posted by the same people.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe Gab accounts previously promoted a site called the Newsroom for American and European Based Citizens (NAEBC), which Facebook experts said was associated with the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian government contractor.

The activities of the accounts shows that they are acting in close coordination with known IRA disinformation operations, Graphika said. The postings typically occurred within an hour on both Patriots.net and Gab networks, Graphika said.The contractor was indicted in 2018 by US special counsel Robert Mueller for interfering in the 2016 election; it has not entered a plea and has reorganised since then. NAEBC has gone offline and the IRA's funder did not return a message seeking comment.

Moscow denies interfering in US elections.Advertisement"The same suspected Russian actors that targeted the 2020 US election have retooled and doubled down on their efforts," said Graphika Director of Investigations Jack Stubbs, a former Reuters reporter. headtopics.com

Advance Democracy said the Gab accounts have more followers now than when NAEBC was publicly linked to the IRA last year and went offline. It said related accounts were active on Parler, which did not respond to a request for comment. Reuters was unable to independently confirm this.

On Thursday, the most active of the Patriots.win accounts posted"2A is the answer to the corrupt pedo elite," garnering hundreds of supportive votes. 2A refers to the Second Amendment to the US Constitution protecting the right to bear arms.

The account did not return a message seeking comment. Read more: CNA »

Did Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards? Kris Kross Memes Have Already BegunDonald Trump spoke in front of the Republican party in North Carolina on Saturday, rehashing his typical talking points and bashing President Joe Biden. But at the end of the night, his words weren’t what had social media buzzing — it was his wrinkly, ill-fitting pants that quickly drew comparisons to Kris Kross and others.
