The FBI is offering a reward of up to $75,000 for information leading to the arrest of Anna Vladislavovna Bogacheva.


Bogacheva speaks Russian and English.  She has ties to Russia.


Anna Vladislavovna Bogacheva is wanted by the FBI for her alleged involvement in a conspiracy to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the Federal Election Commission, the United States Department of Justice, and the United States Department of State.  This occurred in Washington, D.C., from April of 2014 through July of 2014.  Bogacheva oversaw the data analysis group within the Translator Project of the St. Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency (IRA), an organization allegedly engaged in political and electoral interference operations in the United States which included the purchase of American computer server space, the creation of hundreds of fictitious online personas, and the use of stolen identities of persons from the United States.  These alleged actions were taken to reach significant numbers of Americans for the purposes of interfering with the United States political system, including the 2016 Presidential Election.  Additionally, Bogacheva allegedly withheld employment information on her United States visa application and traveled to the United States in June of 2014 to collect information in support of the IRA’s operations.


On February 16, 2018, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Anna Vladislavovna Bogacheva in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia after she was charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States.
