The President of the United States Donald Trump criticized the promotion of a “new mystification” about Russia in connection with reports on the purchase of advertising on Facebook.

Previously, social Facebook reported that during the presidential election campaign in 2016 in the US, Russian bots bought advertising in this social network in order to influence the outcome of the race.

Founder Facebook Mark Zuckerberg informed the public that he gave an order to convey to the US Congress the advertisement found.

In turn, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow has never posted on Facebook advertising, “which is so actively interested in US law enforcement.”
