Atlanta makes a cameo in new indictments out Friday from Special Counsel Robert Mueller accusing 13 Russian nationals of using social media and other activities to influence voters in the 2016 election.
The legal papers say that in November 2014 one of the co-conspirators traveled to Atlanta for five days. The details of the visit were not immediately clear.
The unnamed co-conspirator submitted a summary of the itinerary and expenses for the trip to Sergey Pavlovich Polozov, one of the 13 conspirators named in the charges.
The indictment alleges that Polozov managed the IT department for the conspiracy from 2014 to 2016 and oversaw the procurement of American servers and computer infrastructure that “masked the conspiracy’s Russian location when conducting operations within the United States.”
