US Cyber Operation Blocked Russian Troll Group in November

A U.S. military cyber operation  blocked a Russian troll farm's internet access during and after the 2018 midterm elections.  According to  the Washington Post , the U.S. Cyber Command took action against the Internet Research Agency (IRA) last November to try to prevent the group from spreading disinformation about voting and election results.  The move is reportedly part of a broader campaign against Russia to combat interference in U.S. political events.  The IRA's been on the government's radar for a while now.  Last year, special counsel Robert Mueller  indicted  the IRA for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.  And recent  Senate-commissioned independent reports  gave  more details  on those attempts.

They say IRA agents targeted groups of Americans with specific messaging on the most popular social media platforms.  A Kremlin spokesman  responded to the cyber operation report, saying while he couldn't confirm it, cyber attacks on Russia are "constantly" launched from the U.S.
