Facebook again deletes misleading pages from Russian state channel

Facebook has suspended three popular video channels that were focused on American millennials. The pages appeared to be funded by Russian state channel RT.

It is about three pages that have been on Facebook since September. Videos on the pages were viewed tens of millions of times.

The pages are managed by Maffick Media; a company registered in Germany with Ruptly as the largest shareholder. That company has as its biggest lender the Russian TV channel RT, which is financed by the Russian government.

The pages did not mention these Russian links, but strictly speaking, they were not necessary according to the regulations of Facebook. The pages were filled by freelance employees from Los Angeles in the US.
