The effort also included bogus Facebook ads and social media postings that prosecutors say were aimed at influencing public opinion and sowing discord on hot-button social issues.

The Kremlin denied anew that it tried to sway the election. All 12 defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian federation intelligence agency within the main intelligence directorate of the Russian military, who were acting in "their official capacities". Many observers noted that Rosenstein had briefed the president on the indictment days before it was released - casting his continued attacks on Mueller's investigation, and his continued fondness of Putin, in an even more suspicious light.
