Facebook charged with racial discrimination in targeted housing ads

Russia did not place adverts on Facebook Inc to try to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.

U.S. lawmakers have urged the Federal Election Commission to require transparency for social media advertising after Russian entities purchased political adverts during and after the 2016 election.

However, Peskov said “we do not know how to place an advert on Facebook. We have never done this, and the Russian side has never been involved in it.”
