Three networks associated with Russian military and intelligence structures have been removed
The Facebook administration has blocked a number of suspicious accounts associated with the Russian military or intelligence agencies, the company said in a statement..
Acting on a tip from the FBI, the company tracked down suspicious posts and, as a result of the check, deleted several accounts on Facebook and Instagram..
The accounts were targeted at different countries, including the US, UK, China, Belarus, Syria and Ukraine.
“We removed three different networks for violating our foreign or government intervention policy, which is coordinated misconduct in the interests of a foreign or government agency. These networks originated in Russia, ”the website says..
One network was connected with the Russian military, the other with the Internet Research Agency, and the third with the Russian special services.
Facebook security chief Nathaniel Gleicher calls these networks small.
According to Gleicher, Russian-linked accounts were pretending to be locals in the countries they targeted and attempting to attract people to fake news sites that leaked compromising information..
