>> There will always be bad actors in the world and we can't prevent all governments from all interference. But we can make it harder, we can make it much harder. And that's what we're going to focus on doing. We are actively working with the US government on its ongoing investigations into Russian interference.
We've been investigating this for many months now. And for a while we had found no evidence of fake accounts linked to Russia running ads. When we recently uncovered this activity, we provided that information to the special counsel. We also briefed Congress, and this morning I directed our team to provide the ads we've found to Congress as well.
We've been working to ensure the integrity of the German elections this weekend. From taking action against thousands of fake accounts to partnering with public authorities, like the Federal Office for Information Security. To sharing security practices with the candidates and parties. But we are in a new world, it is a new challenge for Internet communities to have to deal with nation states attempting to subvert elections.
But if that's what we must do, then we are committed to rising to the occasion.
