Late on Wednesday night, police officers arrived outside the studio of the independent television network Dozhd, where they demanded to speak with journalist Anton Baev, the author of a recent investigative report that claims Moscow residents are being offered money to register fake accounts (using real senior citizens’ passport information) and vote online in support of amending Russia’s Constitution.

The officers reportedly wanted to discuss a pack of SIM cards Baev obtained during his reporting. The SIM cards are allegedly part of the scheme to register fake voting accounts.
