"My Facebook page has been sifted down to the year of 2013. They compared me with Anastasia [Deyeva, the 24-year-old newly-appointed deputy minister of interior], "analyzed" my political and personal preferences, claimed I was too young and with no experience, and much more," Kalynchuk wrote on Facebook.
