 Evan Perez of CNN –

Federal prosecutors charged a Russian man – who allegedly worked as a manager in the Russian government’s US-election interference efforts – with conspiracy to steal the identities of Americans to open bank and cryptocurrency accounts.

The charges announced in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, against Artem Mikhaylovich Lifshits, 27, of St. Petersburg, Russia, were part of the US government’s public response against Russians who, the US says, are involved in the Russian election interference operation.
