    From what I know, they exclusively work from Russia. Those like the group caught in Netherlands are not affiliated with troll farm and worked for GRU.

    No, It hasn't. Russia annexed a piece of territory and Putin can do nothing more because of Ukrainian army.

    SO when they have the connection out turned off during the trial how hard would it be to cut our lines to them? Like they go to turn it back on and walla no more internet for Russia, hacking problems 90% solved. In all seriousness I know a few Russian PC guys that game and are already packing there bags, VPN's let them get around most of the bull crap, but this is getting down right scary to them.

    Not clear to me: does this mean the Russians can not access American news? if so it is gross censorship!
