UPD: 05/15/2015 In Kiev there was a fight over the newspaper Vesti
The metropolitan police began a check on the incident in Obolon.
In Kiev, near the metro station of Heroes of the Dnieper, a brawl took place between local residents over the publication of one of the capital's newspapers. This was reported by the press service of the GU MVD of the capital.
"On May 13, 2015, in the morning, the call center on duty at the Obolonsky district police department received a message that a fight broke out when leaving the subway station. The conflict arose between activists of one of the public organizations and local residents," the statement said.
Employees of the district administration arrived at the scene and settled the conflict. Police identified witnesses and eyewitnesses to the incident and interviewed them.
Information about the event is entered into the Unified Record, verification is being carried out.
The Facebook page of the Obolonsky District group reports that the incident occurred due to the spread of the Vesti newspaper.
“Today on the Heroes of the Dnieper there were“ aunts ”in person (they are also the so-called“ athletic-looking guys ”). They have not been seen for a long time. And then they came to guard the“ Vesti ”by the method known to them,” the message says.
Recall, representatives of the Right Sector seized thousands of copies of the Vesti newspaper from distributors in Kiev at the metro stations Heroes of the Dnieper and Vasilkovskaya.
UPD: 05/15/2015 The Ukrainian segment of Facebook is moderated by a representative office in Dublin: we do not have a Russian office, - Zuckerberg
The head of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg promised to consider the possibility of opening a Facebook representative office in Ukraine. At the same time, he refuted the statement that the Russian office moderates the messages of Ukrainian users of the social network, since the Facebook administration does not exist in Russia. The moderation is carried out by employees of the company’s representative office in Dublin, who speak the language of the message.
On Thursday, May 14, local evening, the next online question and answer session began precisely with the question that the Ukrainians asked. The moderator of the meeting said that the most popular question, having gained 45 thousand likes, was precisely the question of Ukraine. User Grigory Kupershmidt complained about the injustice of blocking Facebook pages and messages, explaining that the Ukrainian segment is overseen by Russian management.
According to the head of the company Fecebook, he personally looked at what is being said before giving an answer. Mark Zuckerberg commented that there were indeed several messages that they decided to remove for violating the rules prohibiting the use of the “hate language" against another nationality.
“Unfortunately, there are several articles that violated this rule. People complained, and, after looking at these notes, we determined that some of these messages contained insulting vocabulary against some Russians, and we removed them,” the head of Facebook explained.
He also assured that in Russia there is no Facebook administration that would moderate the Ukrainian segment of the network.
"There were also questions, notes made by Ukrainians, whether the Russians moderated when the conflict between Ukraine and Russia continued. This is not true - we do not have such a Russian office. Therefore, anyone who thinks that moderation comes from the Russian office is anti -Ukrainian moderators, is 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 wrongly informed of the wrong reason - the presence of nudity in the images instead of hate speech. 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 representative office in Ukraine. He said that over time, such an opportunity may be considered, but explained that the feasibility lies in the plane of development of the company, in particular software development.
