Ukrainians have to use only Facebook, said the leader of Ukrainian choice.

A ban in Ukraine social networks Vkontakte, Odnoklassniki and other Russian resources not only restricts the free access of citizens to information, but also demonstrates the desire of the authorities to protect themselves from criticism from civil society. So the leader of the public movement “the Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk.

“From now on multimillion audience of Ukraine – those who used Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki, is deprived of the access to information and the ability to communicate in social networks. Ukrainians have to use only Facebook – the social network that is completely controlled by the “Washington obkom” the true masters of Ukraine”, – said Medvedchuk.

According to him, the ban of the popular social networks suggests that Ukraine is hollow turned from the path of democracy and embarked on the path of North Korea. “…Initiative, ostensibly aimed at protecting national security, in fact, limit the rights of Ukrainian citizens and freedom of speech in the country. And this is done with the sole purpose to protect power from criticism and resentment of the public”, – said Medvedchuk.

Earlier in the Kremlin said that Moscow does not forget about the principle of reciprocity in connection with the sanctions against Kiev in the Russian media.
