Google and Twitter did not find evidence of Russia's influence on the regional elections in the US in 2017. This was reported on January 25 by Politico.

The company's responses to written questions from members of the US Senate Intelligence Committee state that they know nothing about any government-supported attempts to interfere in the election of governors in the states of New Jersey and Virginia, as well as in other expressions of will at the national or local level in the past year.

Google Vice President Kent Walker assured that the company will continue to "develop tools to counter evolving threats."

According to the general counsel of Twitter, Sean Edgett, the resource has the same plans.

In October 2016, the US authorities officially accused Russia of hacking the servers of American parties, as well as in interfering in the process of presidential elections in the country. The published report of US intelligence says that the campaign was ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Executives from Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet testified in three congressional committees on alleged attempts by Russia to spread disinformation before and after the US presidential election in 2016.
