Right wing news outlets have framed this as “democrats running Russian bots”

If this statement is accurate then it’s exactly what I said it was. A fb page and a few tweets about ru bots.

Fox and Trump supporters simply cannot understand the difference between a bot account, a troll account, and a fake Facebook page. They call all of them one thing: “russian bots”
It’s a failure on their part to understand technology, mostly because the journalists assigned to cover the topic at the outlets is usually a boomer that can barely use a desktop pc.

Russian trolls tweeted about medical marijuana in March 2015.
They trolled american political personalities with the hashtag #JunkieUS.

You can find the tweets in both the 538/Clemson University database and the NBC database.

There are 220+ total.
So that means there were probably at least a few thousand because of the way that twitter gave us sample russian accounts(at best 10% of the total)

So far i have been able to find about 365 of them.

The bots were created in late 2013 and all have very similar stats.

The kremlin being so interested in #StopCommonCore is new info to me.
It shows up in both the NBC dataset and the 538 dataset along with #PJNET.
If @TwitterSafety really wants to stop disinformation from inauthentic accounts any pjnet related accounts is a good starting point.
This is the website they use to organize, it is frequently used to spread #kremlinbots tweets.

a few sample tweets.
these are either known russian accounts re-tweeting the network or directly promoting known russian accounts like @patriototus "Being Patrioi2Q9G4LZTY

This account seems fishy, this hashtag is from the_donald
This is classic alt-right trolling.
the_donalds fake liberal and fake black people posts always start with “as a ____”
No one tweeting the #WalkAway hashtag is who they say they are.

I have been sitting on these for a while with no idea how to get them out to people. Finally got them all in screenshot format and published.
600+ screenshots of the 2700 Internet Research Agency twitter handles congress released in november. imgur.com/a/h0SkvDV
All kinds of interesting stuff in these screen caps, account creation dates, who they were re-tweeting, how many friends and followers they had, the hashtags and dates they used the hashtags.
