Dear Mr Zuckerberg,
Since 15 April 2019, Facebook has put in place new rules for political advertisement in all EU Member States. Effectively, paid political content will only be allowed in the country where the ad buyer is based in.
These rules create an unprecedented barrier for European political organisations and political parties.
The 2019 Presidential elections were a test of maturity for Ukrainian civil society.
Outcome of the participation of a number of political parties in the first round of the elections clearly confirmed that the ideology of nationalism today cannot be the factor of unification of a political nation. The advocacy of national interests and the ideology of nationalism are not identical concepts, and torch marches in a modern globalized world do not pave the road to a better future.
