Meta disables Russian Propaganda Network Targeting Europe

According to recent reports, a network spreading misinformation used many social media fake accounts to spread incorrect information about the Kremlin talking points about the invasion of Ukraine. You can learn about the complete story by going through the whole article.

About the misinformation

This operation was carried out in a very systematic manner. Approximately 60 websites were told to copy the style of authentic news websites like the New York Times, The Guardian, etc. The network also used 1600 fake accounts on Facebook so that people from countries like France and Germany could get the news. “On a few occasions, the operation’s content was amplified by the official Facebook pages of Russian embassies in Europe and Asia,” said David Agranovich, Meta’s director of threat disruption. “I think this is probably the largest and most complex Russian-origin operation that we’ve disrupted since the beginning of the war in Ukraine earlier this year.” The researchers claim that they do not have evidence to link this incident to the Russian government. Still, they have definitely found a link between the Russian diplomats and the network. That is because of the strategies used and methods used to make this operation as big as it got, you need someone influential and affluent to help you.
