The police will not trace people using Russia's VKontakte social network in Ukraine.
Secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov's statement that social network users will be traced could have been misunderstood, the RBC Ukraine news agency reports with reference to police sources.
"The cyber police don't deal with this. Danilov got it wrong or was misunderstood," the source said.
- On September 25, Danilov said government agencies would trace people using Russia's VKontakte social network in Ukraine.
- In addition, Danilov said the NSDC and other government agencies, together with international partners, were planning to completely close access to VKontakte in Ukraine in future.
- In turn, the administration of Russia's VKontakte social network says it is inadmissible to persecute people for visiting its resource.
