It was Ukrainian users who targeted the Facebook profile of the Russian energy giant long known for its gas blackmail tactics against Ukraine.
A flashmob effort where users would put a minimum grade, which is "1", to the Facebook page in the review section effectively collapsed Gazprom's rating on Facebook to just 1.5 on July 10, TSN reports.
A few hours later, Gazprom was apparently forced to shut down the review option as such.
The users would also write "Glory to Ukraine!" in comments.
As reported earlier, Ukrainians crashed the rating of FIFA page on Facebook, also making the organization to switch off the review function.
The reason for the mass engagement of Ukrainians toward FIFA was the fining of a Croatian footballer Ognjen Vukojevic and of a warning to another player Domagoj Vida for the video they released online with the slogan "Glory to Ukraine!" immediately after Croatia knocked off Russia from the FIFA World Cup 2018 at a quarterfinal stage.
Meanwhile, the Football Federation of Ukraine expressed readiness to pay Vukojevic's fine amounting to almost EUR 13,000 and offered a job to Vukojevic, who already works in Dynamo Kyiv as a scout for the Balkans. Vukojevic in turn said he would pay the fine himself.
