Google unclosed Russia-backed ads on YouTube, Gmail: Washington Post


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Google has detected that Russian operatives spent tens of thousands of dollars on ads on YouTube, Google search, Gmail and other products, The Washington Post reported on Monday.

The ads do not seem to be from a same Kremlin-affiliated entity that bought ads on Facebook, that might prove a broader Russian online disinformation effort, a Post said. Google runs a world’s largest online promotion business and YouTube is a world’s largest online video site.
