The FBI is offering a reward of up to $75,000 for information leading to the arrest of Dzheykhun Nasimi Ogly Aslanov.


Aslanov speaks Russian and English.  He has ties to Russia, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Finland.


Dzheykhun Nasimi Ogly Aslanov is wanted by the FBI for his 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 September of 2014 to February 16, 2018.  Aslanov served as Head of the Internet Research Agency’s (IRA) Translator Project, the organization’s US-focused contingent which allegedly conducted operations on social media platforms.  Aslanov is also charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud after allegedly opening accounts under false names at United States financial institutions in order to transfer money in and out of the United States to support the IRA’s operations in the United States.  Aslanov is also charged with aggravated identity theft after allegedly using the personal information of Americans without their knowledge to open bank and PayPal accounts.  These actions were performed in support of the IRA’s alleged efforts to reach significant numbers of Americans for the purposes of interfering with the United States political system, including the 2016 Presidential Election. 


On February 16, 2018, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Dzheykhun Nasimi Ogly Aslanov in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia after he was charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, and aiding and abetting.
