05.10.2018, Donetsk.

Facebook blocked the DPR representative office’s page at the Joint Centre for Ceasefire Control and Coordination (JCCC) publishing information online about Ukrainian military shelling of DPR territory, the Donetsk News Agency reported on October 4th.

Citing the head of the DPR representative office at the JCCC, Ruslan Yakubov, the agency reported that Facebook not only blocked the page, but deleted it completely after receiving a blockage complaint. “We consider Facebook’s actions as an act of political censorship, aimed at destruction of alternative information sources,” Ruslan Yakubov commented the blockage.

Joint Centre for Ceasefire Control and Coordination and the Stabilization of Southeastern Ukraine (JCCC) was established in 2014. JCCC addresses issues concerning the use of all types of weapons in Southeastern Ukraine.
