Officials are ready to pay this amount to anyone who provides information that can help identify or detect foreigners or organizations that interfere in elections. Interference is considered to be “hidden, fraudulent, misleading illegal actions or attempted actions”, “falsification of voting results and intrusion into databases; certain influence, disinformation and bot farm campaigns; or malicious cyberattacks.”
Such an award was appointed as part of the State Department's "Reward for Justice" program, which has been operating since 1984. The United States has already paid over $250 million on it.
Recall that last year the FBI offered $250,000 for information that would help arrest Konstantin Kilimnik, who is accused of interfering in the US presidential election. According to the FBI, the Russian was linked to Russian intelligence and “assisted a multimillion-dollar lobbying campaign in the United States, allegedly at the direction of the Ukrainian government, and did not provide legally required documents disclosing this information.”
