The U.S. State Department offered $10 million to anyone who would provide information about Russia’s interference in the U.S. elections. This is reported on the official page of the Rewards for Justice program on Twitter.

“The U.S. will reward those who help us in the fight against interference in the U.S. elections. If you have information about operations aimed at the U.S. elections, you can qualify for a reward of up to $10 million,” the text says.

Reports about the award have already started to be sent to residents of Russia from different regions of the country. Users are posting screenshots on the social network.

Earlier, August 5, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reported on the award for information, reports the National Assembly. This way, the U.S. authorities want to identify those who allegedly interfered in the presidential election, thanks to which Donald Trump won in 2016.

Earlier, Pompeo threatened Russia with a response in case of interference in the U.S. elections.

In May, it became known that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI earlier this year warned U.S. state authorities about eight methods that Russia, according to their version, may use to interfere in the upcoming presidential elections.
