Facebook has removed 124 accounts, 15 Pages, six Groups and 30
Instagram accounts from Azerbaijan that targeted primarily Azerbaijan
and to a much lesser extent Armenia.

“We found this network as a result of our internal investigation
following routine enforcement against two third-party Android
applications — Postegro and Nunu, which misled people into giving away
their Instagram credentials,” Facefook said.

“It appears that this activity was separate and unrelated to the same
actors’ coordinated inauthentic behavior. Our CIB investigation found
links to individuals associated with the Defense Ministry of
Azerbaijan,” it added.
