The content of the ads was previously reported by The Washington Post.
This person, who requested anonymity, also said the ads will be shared with congressional investigators in a matter of days.
Facebook said earlier this month that an internal investigation had found that groups with ties to Russia had spent $100,000 on ads designed to influence the attitudes of U.S. voters in the last presidential campaign.
