Putin’s Trolls is a first-hand memoir/reportage account by award-winning Finnish journalist Jessikka Aro who was bullied out of her country by Putin’s internet trolls, revealing the true face of an invisible threat that is only growing in power. Russia wages war against civilians online. Every critical voice is an enemy.
Putin’s Trolls presents the criminal smearing campaign, launched and approved by the Kremlin against private individuals around Western countries. It is a chilling account of Russia's modern tools of information warfare, shedding light on the individuals and organizations behind the Kremlin's coordinated, military-style social media psy-ops.
"Valuable insight into Russian troll operations worldwide." – Helsingin Sanomat newspaper
"Journalist Aro has been extraordinarily brave and has set an example worldwide in the fight against trolls. Her book has a strong message: online crimes must be documented and exposed like any crimes." – Uusi Suomi newspaper
"Important and informative! Lots of useful knowledge about information warfare as well as modern online bullying". – Amman kirjablogi blog
By exposing Putin’s institutionalized trolling operations, Jessikka Aro has gone where no one has had the courage to go before and has done so at great peril. Ms. Aro has done the world a huge service by showing us how these tactics work so we can better defend ourselves going forward.
