FBI, law enforcement hold news conference on Uhuru House investigation


The Department of Justice accused a Russian national of spearheading a multi-year influence campaign using U.S. political groups to spread pro-Russian propaganda and interfere in elections, including those in St. Petersburg.

Aleksandr Viktorovich Ionov, who is a resident of Moscow, was charged with conspiring to have U.S. citizens act as illegal agents of the Russian government, according to a DOJ news release.

The FBI confirmed its raid Friday morning at the headquarters of the Uhuru Movement in St. Petersburg is connected to the alleged conspiracy.

Agents carried out a court-authorized warrant at the Uhuru House, located at 1245 18th Ave. S., which is the Florida-based headquarters of a Black international socialist group. They were seen carrying out unidentified boxes for hours.
