Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the identification or location of any foreign person, including a foreign entity, who knowingly engaged or is engaging in interference in U.S. elections, as well as information leading to the prevention, frustration, or favorable resolution of an act of foreign election interference.
Rewards for Justice is seeking information on Elena Khusyaynova, a Russian national previously charged with interfering in the U.S. political system, including the 2018 midterm election.
As of 2018, Khusyaynova served as the chief accountant in Project Lakhta’s finance department, where she managed Project Lakhta’s budgeting and payment of expenses associated with its social media operations, advertising campaigns, infrastructure, and registration of legal entities used to further its activities.
Project Lakhta, a Russian media influence organization funded by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, has sought to interfere in political and electoral systems worldwide. Since at least May 2014, Project Lakhta’s stated goal in the United States has been to disrupt the democratic process and spread distrust towards candidates for political office and the political system in general. The operation has used, among other things, fictitious online personas that posed as U.S. persons in an effort to interfere in U.S. elections.
Anyone with information on Elena Khusyaynova or associated entities and/or individuals linked to foreign interference in U.S. elections should contact Rewards for Justice via our Tor-based tips-reporting channel at: he5dybnt7sr6cm32xt77pazmtm65flqy6irivtflruqfc5ep7eiodiad.onion (Tor browser required).
