Google: No evidence of a Russian advertising campaign on the US elections

Online search engine Google said on Thursday it had no proof of its advertising platform for a Russian propaganda campaign, as Facebook says it appeared on its network before and after the US presidential election last year.

“We have always monitored the abuse or violation of our policies and have not seen evidence of the management of this kind of advertising campaign on our platforms,” Google, the YouTube affiliate and owner of YouTube, said in a statement.
