Facebook said it has taken down three networks of fake accounts which could be used by Russia's intelligence services to leak hacked documents in a bid to affect the upcoming Presidential Elections in United States. According to Facebook, the suspended accounts were linked to Russian intelligence and people associated with a St. Petersburg-based organization that also tried disrupting the 2016 elections.
