$10 million bounty on Putin's pal

The feds have set a $10 million reward for information about foreign interference in the US election, specifically for a Russian oligarch and close friend of President Vladimir Putin accused of funding an organization involved in meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The bounty, offered through the US State Department's "Rewards for Justice" program, is specifically seeking information on the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA), businessman Yevgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin, and any "related Russian entities and associates for their involvement in interfering in the US election".

The IRA is a Russian troll super-farm accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential election and is believed to have helped Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.
