The social network Facebook recognized the post of the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Czech Republic Yevhen Perebyinis as inciting hatred and deleted it. The post criticized the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about Ukrainians and Russians being 'one people'. This was reported by Perebyinis on his Facebook page.

"My post was deleted. I wonder which word from it contradicts the rules and incites hatred? After all, I did not name anyone directly. But 'they' understand that 'they' are 'they', the ambassador wrote.

Perebyinis also attached a screenshot of the deleted post to the new message. It includes: "What one people? What brothers? Considering how purposefully and cold-bloodedly they (Russians) destroyed us (Ukrainians) during several centuries, we are not even relatives. Normal people do not kill relatives."

According to a Facebook explanation, the post violates its Community Standards on hate speech and inferiority.

As it was reported earlier, on July 12, the Kremlin's website published an article by Russian President Vladimir Putin On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians.
