In the Kamchatka Territory, the non-profit organization "Kamchatka Information and Analytical Center" (KIAC), which is better known in the region as the "troll factory", was disbanded. The regional government felt that there was no need for her work.

According to "Kam24”, Now the CIAC is no longer functioning. According to the governor of the region, Vladimir Solodov, the liquidation took place as part of the optimization of subordinate institutions, and the costs of maintaining such a structure cannot be called a priority, which means they need to be reduced. In addition, now, the head of the region added, monitoring of the information space has passed into federal jurisdiction.

As the journalists of the edition note, in the region it is believed that the KIAC employees were writing anonymous comments in support of the authorities and forging the results of online polls on the Internet. The governor neither confirmed nor denied such information, noting that the tasks of the structure have never been to manipulate public opinion. The structure was engaged in monitoring the information space, prepared messages from the government, and worked in social networks.
