  • “Overall, the focus of my organization — and most of Facebook — was on large-scale problems, an approach which fixated us on spam,” Zhang reportedly wrote. “The civic aspect was discounted because of its small volume, its disproportionate impact ignored.”

These accounts posed as journalists and locals in countries they targeted. Some of the pages and groups they managed claimed to be hacktivist groups. This network posted about current events, including the Syrian civil war, and politics in several countries such as Ukraine, Russia and the US. They tried to get Facebook users to visit other websites, links which the social network said it has blocked.

Facebook said Thursday it removed more than 340 accounts and pages and groups tied to Russia, some of which posed as journalists and tried to drive people to other websites and social media platforms.

They said the investigation was also looking at assistance to a foreign state by certain Ukrainian public figures, suspected of “supporting the state bodies of a neighbouring country in conducting subversive activities to the detriment of Ukraine.”

“At nearly 1,000 pages, Volume 5 stands as the most comprehensive examination of ties between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign to date — a breathtaking level of contacts between Trump officials and Russian government operatives that is a very real counterintelligence threat to our elections,” Sen. Mark Warner, vice chairman of the committee, said in a statement.

Feingold and former student Andrej Svorenčík traced copies of the book around the world, from the UK to Ukraine, Slovakia to South Africa, Russia to Japan, and detail their findings in a study published in the journal – http://www.trainingzone.co.uk/search/journal Annals of Science.

“This cannot happen again. As we head into the heat of the 2020 campaign season, I strongly urge campaigns, the executive branch, Congress and the American people to heed the lessons of this report in order to protect our democracy,” Warner said.

The pair calls their census preliminary and believe more undocumented copies exist in public and private collections. They estimate that more than 600 copies of the book’s first edition, and as many as 750, were printed in 1687. In 2016, a first edition sold for $3.7 million, a record for a science book.

The two countries have repeatedly clashed in recent years over what Hungary said were curbs on the rights of around 150,000 ethnic Hungarians living in Ukraine to use their native tongue, especially in education, after Ukraine passed a law in 2017 restricting the use of minority languages in schools.

The removal of these accounts, he said, is one sign that Facebook’s use of technology and partnerships with government officials, researchers and others is making it harder for bad actors to conceal their identities and what they’re doing.

The network of Russian-linked accounts that had the most following were tied to Russian intelligence services. Facebook pulled 23 Facebook accounts, 6 Pages, and 8 Instagram accounts in this network. They posed as editors and researchers to get people to write articles for their sites. They posted about politics in various countries including the US. About 59,000 accounts followed one or more of these Pages and around 2,000 people followed one or more of these Instagram accounts.

BUDAPEST/KYIV, הופעות במדריד 2017 – http://wiki.iurium.cz/w/U%C5%BEivatel:JohnieGabel45 Nov 30 (Reuters) – Hungary summoned the Ukrainian ambassador and accused its neighbor of intimidation on Monday after Ukraine´s state security service (SBU) raided the offices of ethnic Hungarians, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said.

“While the GRU and WikiLeaks were releasing hacked documents, the Trump campaign sought to maximize the impact of those leaks to aid Trump’s electoral prospects,” the report said. “Staff on the Trump campaign sought advance notice about WikiLeaks releases, created messaging strategies to promote and share the materials in anticipation of and following their release, and encouraged further leaks.”

Facebook reportedly ignored fake accounts being used to undermine elections via misinformation posted on the social media platform, according to a leaked memo. The 6,000-word memo, written by a former Facebook data scientist and seen by BuzzFeed News, said the site reacted slowly to evidence of coordinated campaigns to influence political results globally.

“One of the realizations we’ve had is that the transmission of the book and its ideas was far quicker and more open than we assumed, and this will have implications on the future work that we and others will be doing on this subject,” said Mordechai Feingold, a professor of the history of science and the humanities at Caltech. Feingold has for years studied the work of Newton, one of the most influential scientists of all time.
