VPN Sales Soar After Russia Bans Telegram App, Media Reports
Telegram users in Russia looking to get around the government's ban on the app have caused a spike in the use of circumvention tools like VPNs - an increase of "up to 1,000 percent," The Moscow Times reports:

"The sales of online privacy tools in Russia have skyrocketed by up to 1,000 percent amid state efforts to ban the Telegram messaging application in the country...'We’re seeing an increased interest from Russian business since Telegram began to be blocked,' the Kommersant business daily quoted TorGuard CEO Benjamin Van Pelt as saying Monday. TorGuard, a provider of virtual privacy networks (VPN) that allow users to bypass filters, saw 1,000 percent more Russian subscribers since April, Van Pelt was cited as saying...CyberGhost and Golden Frog VyprVPN registered a 380 percent and 190 percent increase in new accounts each, Kommersant reported...Meanwhile, Roskomnadzor said it has banned 80 VPNs for being 'specially created' to help users evade the Telegram ban, Kommersant reported. Under new regulations, VPNs and proxy services can be banned in Russia for not registering with Roskomnadzor in what critics say is a clampdown on internet freedom."

Meanwhile, Russia's Internet commissioner is asking the Attorney General's Office to look at the "legality and validity" of the Telegram ban, Meduza reports. https://meduza.io/en/news/2018/05/22/russia-s-internet-commissioner-thinks-the-attorney-general-s-office-should-check-to-see-if-the-federal-censor-has-overstepped-its-authority

My team’s research further reveals that these cultural posts never promoted a unified ideology that the IRA hoped Americans would adopt. Instead, Russian trolls produced content that embraced a wide range of political thought, often in direct opposition to one another. (See the examples below). The goal of such posts, of course, is to divide Americans and keep them in a constant state of outrage
