Google has detected the intervention of Russian propagandists in the US election

on Mon 9 Oct 2017 - 10:16
Google has detected the intervention of Russian propagandists in the US election

Google first detected the facts of Russian company operators' use of the company's platform to influence the US presidential election in 2016

The Washington Post writes about it .

The company found that tens of thousands of dollars were spent on advertising for Russian agents that aimed at spreading misinformation in many Google products, including YouTube, as well as ads related to Google, Gmail, and the DoubleClick ad network.

As the newspaper writes, opening Google also is significant because the ads do not seem the same, "the Kremlin farm trolls" that bought advertising on Facebook - a sign that the efforts of Russia on misinformation online can be much wider problem than thought still.

Google has previously diminished the problem of Russia's intervention on its platforms. Last month, Google spokeswoman Andrea Favill told The Washington Post, that the company "continuously monitors abuses or violations of our policies and we do not see any evidence that such a campaign was launched on our platform."

However, Google launched its own investigation into this issue, as Congress forced technology companies to determine how Russian operators used social media, internet advertising and other digital tools to influence the presidential election in 2016.

U.S. Ambassador To Russia Cites Ukraine As Key To Improving Ties

U.S. Ambassador To Russia Cites Ukraine As Key To Improving Ties



The new U.S. ambassador to Russia says restoring Ukrainian sovereignty over all its territory will be a key issue in his dealings with Moscow as he begins his tenure amid a period of high tensions between the two world powers.

Speaking in Salt Lake City, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman on October 7 said he wants to improve relations with Russia, but he insisted the first step would be for Moscow to return Ukrainian control to territory within its internationally recognized borders.

"This is an issue not only with the United States, but with Europe, Canada, and virtually every other developed country," said Huntsman, who was visiting his home state for a ceremonial swearing-in event.

Moscow seized the Crimean Peninsula from Kyiv's control and has supported separatists in eastern Ukraine in war that has killed more than 10,000 people since 2014.

The United States, other Western countries, and the European Union have imposed sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine, just one of many global issues separating the two countries.

Huntsman, who presented his credentials to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin on October 3, told the Salt Lake City crowd that he wants to work with Moscow to solve the crisis over North Korea’s banned nuclear and ballistic-missile programs.

He called Pyongyang a threat to Russia and the rest of the world, not just to the United States.

"Acting together, we think the United States and Russia could force the North Korean regime to the negotiating table to find a diplomatic solution," he said.

Huntsman's comments came a week after President Donald Trump said in an October 1 Twitter statement that negotiating with North Korea over its nuclear and missile programs was a “waste of time.”

Huntsman also spoke of possible cooperation with Russia in the effort to defeat the Islamic State (IS) militant group and in efforts to end the six-year civil war in Syria, where Washington and Moscow back opposing sides....................

At the moment, the exact number of troops deployed in Romania is unknown. According to the agency, the naval component will include a more frequent visit by naval ships of the NATO countries of the ports of Romania and Bulgaria, as well as more exercises.

The Normandy format will not help: Putin made a new statement on the Donbas

The Normandy format will not help: Putin made a new statement on the Donbas

Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said that the "Norman format" and the involvement of other countries would not help resolve the conflict in the Donbass.

He announced this today, on October 9, according to RIA Novosti.

"Changes" on the ground "can not be provided by the forces of countries participating in the Norman process or other countries, in particular the United States." The changes on the ground can only be provided by the parties to this conflict, which are Kiev and Donbass, "said Peskov.

According to him, a "political will" is needed to change, aimed at solving the problem instead of putting it on.

Also, Peskov spoke about the meeting of US Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and Russian President's Assistant Vladislav Surkov , who was held recently in Belgrade.

"As for the meeting between Surkov and Walker, there was a clock alignment, an exchange of views on the situation," he said.

RosMMI learned about Macron's acceptance of Putin's invitation

French President Emmanuel Macron is ready to visit St. Petersburg at the invitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Kommersant reports citing sources in diplomatic circles in Paris.

It is reported that the decision on the visit is almost accepted, but until it is officially announced.

"The reason is purely formal, but it is quite venerable. Presidential elections in Russia will take place only in March, and although we anticipate their result, it would not be quite right to take the invitation of Vladimir Putin, who has not yet been reelected," - the source said.

Putin's invitation to visit Russia was transferred to Macron on May 29 during a meeting in Versailles . Previously, it was planned that the leader of France will visit Russia in December 2017 or early January 2018, but the option was rejected because of Christmas holidays in Russia.

It is expected that the visit will take place from May 24 to 26 during the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg.
