Facebook and Twitter removed two anti-Ukrainian “covert influence operations” over the weekend, one tied to Russia and another with connections to Belarus, the companies said. NBC News in America quotes a Facebook spokesperson as saying that one of the operations, a propaganda campaign featuring a website pushing anti-Ukraine talking points, used computer-generated faces to bolster the credibility of fake columnists across several platforms, including Instagram. The fake profiles, complete with realistic looking AI generated photographs of them, were created under the names of “Vladimir Bondarenko,” a blogger from Kyiv who spreads anti-Ukrainian propaganda and “Irina Kerimova,” a Kharkiv-based guitar teacher-turned editor-in-chief of the “Ukraine Today” website.
