Russian Internet Troll Sues Former Employer

A former Russian internet “troll” hired to promote political views online is suing her ex-employer in an attempt to draw attention to the country’s “information war” , a news report said on Friday.
The report said the employee filed the lawsuit under grounds that the employer failed to provide any labour contract or other paperwork supporting her hiring and eventual dismissal. The employee said she was fired after speaking to the media about her employer, Internet Research, which she described as part of Russia’s “troll factory”. A St Petersburg city court expects to hear the case next month.
