Umm, the infobox seems to have information on the CIA instead of the FSB. I'm guessing vandalism, but the page history mentions something or other about using it as a template. What's going on there?

Criminal Organization[edit]

|Van Bavel, the NYU professor, has studied a phenomenon he calls “moral contagion,” referring to the use of moral emotional language to help content go viral on social networks. He says tugging at those emotions tends to drive people deeper into ideological echo chambers, dynamics he saw at play in the Russian ads. “What you’re more likely to click on is stuff that triggers this part of the brain that is so primal,” he says. “Russians knows as much. They know how to pull us apart and agitate us.” There’s nothing new about campaigns to manipulate voters, but Van Bavel believes says it can be more polarizing in the internet age because access to media is more fragmented and curated.

GARRETT M. GRAFF A Guide to Russia’s High Tech Tool Box for Subverting US Democracy Malcolm Harris, author of a book about millennials called Kids These Days, says some of the ads had the same “campy and jokey,” but also weirdly extremist aesthetics found in corners of “the conspiracy web.” Harris says internet aesthetics are transnational, which could make it harder to identify their origin than, say, a movie. “There’s nothing that screams out not American,” he says. He says they look more like the work of American conservatives than liberals. “The stuff on the left just tends to look like lower quality mainstream stuff,” says Harris, “whereas the right really has their own thing with memes and cartoons.”

Bruce McClintock, an adjunct policy analyst at the Rand Corporation and a retired brigadier general who served as the senior defense official at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, says the ads resonate with Russian and Soviet tactics of other eras. “It’s about spreading disinformation, propaganda, counterfeit official documents to increase confusion,” he says. McClintock says the goal of the campaign likely was broader than just the election and includes the long-term objective of weakening the US and undermining America’s reputation in the eyes of the world.

function of 2 buildings today[edit],_Bolshaya_Lubyanka_2_Jan_2010_02.jpg

If Kuznetsky_Most_Street_24 is the headquarters of the fsb, what is the older and more infamous purpose of Bolshaya_Lubyanka_2 now?

How does their purpose differ?

The older Bolshaya_Lubyanka_2 is listed as the fsb on some of the tourist street maps now, but Kuznetsky_Most_Street_24 is is not correctly labeled on Yandex maps either. There are no identifying plaques on 24. Interestingly, to show how the church and state work together now, there is a Russian orthodox church nestled in 24.
