This article, which is being linked and shared on Facebook, claims that British MP and Brexit campaigner Jacob Rees-Mogg is receiving support on social media from known Kremlin networks.
Analysis of social media traffic between January and February 2018 shows support for Jacob Rees-Mogg is coming from known Kremlin networks. ...
With a network of accounts pushing Kremlin propaganda from George Soros memes to fake news around EU immigration, Rees-Mogg is now firmly embedded as a popular figure for Russia to champion and its disinformation network is using the botnet to create large numbers of impressions using retweets to push the narrative into the mainstream.
Within the Conservative government of embattled Prime Minister Theresa May, Rees-Mogg is leading the charge towards a no deal brexit, an outcome desired by Russia due to its destabilisation of both the EU and NATO.
Is this claim true?
How reliable is this analysis?

How does the level of social media support (if any) given from Russian state-controlled sources to Rees-Mogg and other Brexiteers compare to the level of support they give to his political opponents? And to other UK political figures and viewpoints? Is this something that can be reliably quantified?
