Russia accuses Google and Facebook of interfering in the elections


Another country seems to blame them Google and Facebook to intervene in its elections.

In accordance with Reuters, its officials Ρωσίας said that both Google and Facebook have posted advertisements on the Russian elections on their platforms, which contradicts the laws of the country.

As is clear, Russia is essentially accusing the two tech giants of interfering in its elections.

Russia has enacted laws banning political advertising "during elections on Sunday and the day before," according to Reuters. Russia's Roskomnadzor, the government body that oversees the country's media laws, said Facebook and Google had posted ads during Sunday's election.

"These ενέργειες interfere in Russia's internal affairs and prevent democratic elections in the Russian Federation ", according to a translation of a message website by Roskomnadzor.

Google and Facebook did not immediately respond to Russia's accusations.

Of course, Facebook has spent the last two years eradicating Russian-backed propaganda and other "coordinated non-authentic behavior" in platform since the country's improper use of social media during the 2016 US presidential election. Since then, Facebook has discovered several other networks - from Russia and other countries - that have attempted to manipulate social media users.
