Україна вимагає української Facebook адміністрації.
Letter to Facebook Head Office.
We, Ukrainian Community on Facebook, are forced to
write you this letter about the emergency that has been taking place due to a
careless administration of the Russian Regional Representatives in the
Ukrainian Facebook segment.
Recently, blocking a lot of popular and active users in the
Ukrainian Community has become a common and usual thing. Our requests for
support to set out these issues, our request for explanations of reasons of
blocking are constantly ingnored, or - if considered - considered for a very
long time and with no proper attention.
Also, there has been noticed that the requests for support are required to be
written only in Russian otherwise they will not be taken to consideration at
all. This, in our opinion, is unacceptable and unethical: many Ukrainians do
not know Russian. The users with unique and authentic Ukrainian surnames are
suspected in submitting false information about them and for this fake reason
The accounts of Ukrainian public activists who do not agree with the politics
of the current Ukrainian Authorities (opposition suppress, breaking human
rights, etc), and who stand on their position are deleted.
All this makes the Ukrainian users come down with strong discontent and
protests. Lots of communities are created to support the blocked friends and
hot discussions how to avoid these problems never stop. The information about
these scandals becomes public through the Mass Media (newspapers and TV),
causes negative reaction in the society for possible censorship in the
Internet. No doubt, all this does not input anything good to the image and
reputation of one of the best, most popular and mostly wide spread social
networks in the world.
On account of language and mental obstacles the Regional Administration of the
Social Network in Russia is totally unable to understand Ukrainian users, since
this Administration is in Russia, the country the foreign policy of which
towards our country is very cold, daresay - hostile.
Besides, the political situation in our country is very complicated: Ukraine
makes her difficult way to democracy. The amount of false accounts with the
only aim - various political propaganda and political lies about the opposition
has increased very much lately. Internet trolls and spammers paid by political
technologists work as political killers of all who stand on public and human
rights position and defend their views. But as for these cases - the Russian
Regional Administration does definitely nothing to stop them. To our strong
belief the responsible representatives connive at it and unofficially aprove
it, because - as was said above - Russian foreign policy towards Ukraine is
Taking into account everything said above, we, Ukrainian Community on Facebook,
are forced to claim from you to consider a creation of a Regional
Administration of the Social Network in Ukraine, which could quickly and
effectively work to provide technical support and consult Ukrainian Facebook
users. This also would help a lot to Ukrainian advertisers, for many Ukrainian
businessmen are very interested in having more productive and effective
business with Facebook.
A very important thing in favor of our proposal is that the amount of users in
the Ukrainian segment on Facebook has almost doubled for the last year and now
goes up to 1.5 million. For example, the Azerbaijanian segment has about 0.5
million users, but the possibility to create their own Administration is being
We believe that you should consider our proposal in as short term as you can,
because the situation becomes the more and more difficult and incandescent day
after day. We do not believe that the Facebook Administration is going to
connive at the Russian authoritarism that they practice and spread and induce
where ever they reach key positions. We want the world to know at last now and
forever: the Ukrainians and Russians are two absolutely different peoples. As
different as the French and Germans; as the Iraqui and Irani. Please,
Similar to the citizens of the United States we strongly believe in democratic
values and we are sure that this letter will not be ignored by the Facebook
