Breaking news from the United States: On December 1, Jessikka Aro received the International Women’s Media Foundation Courage in Journalism Award, presented in partnership with the Washington Post and hosted by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. Jessikka was recognized for her award-winning investigative reporting of Russian information warfare. This award differs from the one reported two months ago by CNN, when Trump’s White House and State Department revoked its invitation for her to receive a prestigious International Women of Courage (IWOC) Award due to social media posts by Aro that the President found critical.

Putin’s Trolls has been a sales sensation in Finland since its publication in 2019, and drawing rave reviews. Her account is timeless, and its information is eye-opening.

Jessikka Aro (born 1980) is a Finnish journalist working for Finland’s public service broadcaster Yle. In September 2014, she began to investigate pro-Russian Internet trolls, but became a victim of their activities herself.

In 2019 she was notified that she was to receive an International Women of Courage Award but this was mysteriously rescinded just before the ceremony.
