Russia-Trump troll suspect defends internet job

15 March 2019

A Russian computer expert accused of meddling in the US 2016 presidential election says he simply did ordinary IT work, not political trolling.

Sergei Polozov is among 13 Russians named in the Mueller indictment, which alleges a systematic Russian state effort to influence US voters.

Mr Polozov told BBC Russian he knew nothing about a Russian "troll farm" called the Internet Research Agency.

The agency's alleged location, he said, was a business centre he had visited.
