The US State Department announced Friday that it is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information on foreign interference in the US election. Information leading to the identification of the perpetrators or the suppression of such attempts will be rewarded.

According to the Ministry of Diplomacy, information is sought “leading to the identification or localization of any foreign entity that was knowingly or participating in foreign interference in the elections, as well as information that leads to the prevention, thwarting or positive solution of the interference.”

It has been added that acts of interference may include, inter alia, the following: voice manipulation, database incursions, disinformation campaigns and other hostile activities in cyberspace.

This year’s congressional and local government elections will take place in November, and the campaign is already underway. American The services expect, as in previous years, that elections will also be the target of foreign operations, particularly from Russia, China and Iran.

According to the State Department, the department has paid more than $250 million to more than 125 people since it created the Rewards for Justice program in 1984, which provides rewards for US security information.
