Facebook Takes Down Inauthentic Network in Ukraine Tied to PR firm
On July 8, 2020, Facebook took down a network of inauthentic accounts and pages on Facebook and Instagram that it connected to a Ukrainian marketing agency, “Postmen”. The assets mainly posted about political and social events in Ukraine. They attacked former president Petro Poroshenko’s electoral rivals Volodymyr Zelensky - now the president - and Yulia Tymoshenko, and urged Ukrainians to boycott Russian companies and products.
