KIEV (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 11th January, 2019) Ukraine on Thursday urged Twitter to block the account of the Russian Foreign Ministry in Crimea citing human rights violations allegedly committed by Moscow.
"We have sent official complaint Twitter Support. It's absolutely unacceptable to give so called Russia's MFA in occupied #Crimea a blue tick! RU illegally annexed Crimea, militarized it & commits gross violations of human rights. Twitter must block that account!" the embassy said on Twitter.
Ukrainian authorities have accused Russia of interfering in Ukraine's internal affairs and being involved in the conflict in Donbas. The European Union and the United States imposed restrictive measures against Russian individuals, companies and economic sectors, while Moscow responded by imposing restrictions on food imports from the countries that supported the sanctions.
Russia has repeatedly denied the allegations, stressing that it is not party to the internal conflict in Ukraine and wanted the country to overcome its political and economic crises.
