On the page of the Obolonsky District group on Facebook it is reported that the incident occurred due to the spread of the newspaper Vesti.

UPD: 05/15/2015 The moderation of the Ukrainian segment of Facebook is represented in Dublin: we have no Russian office, - Zuckerberg
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised to consider the possibility of opening a Facebook office in Ukraine. At the same time, he refuted the statement that the moderation of posts by Ukrainian users of the social network is produced by the Russian office, since the Facebook administration in Russia does not exist. Moderation is carried out by employees of the company's representative office in Dublin, who speak the language in which the message was made.
On Thursday, May 14, in the evening local time, the next online question and answer session began with the question that the Ukrainians asked. The moderator of the meeting said that the most popular question, with 45,000 likes, was precisely the question about Ukraine. User Grigory Kupershmidt complained about the injustice in blocking pages and posts by Facebook, explaining that the Ukrainian segment is in charge of Russian management.
According to the head of the company Fecebook, he personally looked at what was going on before giving an answer. Mark Zuckerberg commented that there were indeed a few messages that they decided to delete for violating the rules prohibiting the use of "hate speech" against other nationalities.
“Unfortunately, there are several articles that violated this rule. People complained, and after looking at these records, we determined that some of these messages contained offensive language regarding some Russians, and we shot them,” the head of Facebook explained.
He also assured that there is no Facebook administration in Russia that would moderate the Ukrainian segment of the network.
"There were also questions, notes made by Ukrainians, whether Russians are moderated at the time when the conflict between Ukraine and Russia continues. This is not true - we do not have such a Russian office. Therefore, everyone who thinks moderation comes from the Russian office “Ukrainian moderators are mistaken,” Zuckerberg assured.
He explained that moderation is carried out by employees of the company's representative office in Dublin, who speak the language in which the message was made. However, he added that there was an error in the system, due to which the authors of individual messages were mistakenly told the wrong reason - the presence of nakedness in the images instead of the vocabulary of hate. Facebook apologized for this mistake, Mark said.
After that, Zuckerberg answered the question of the President of Ukraine Poroshenko about the possibility of opening a Facebook office in Ukraine. He said that over time this possibility could be considered, but he explained that expediency lies in the plane of the company's development, in particular, software development.
