We are glad that the petition initiated by #ANTS to move the offices of Facebook, Google, YouTube to Ukraine was supported by the President of Ukraine. At a time when the Russian Federation is using any means to destabilize Ukraine, including social networks, we consider it necessary that the offices of well-known social networks be moderated not in Russia but in Ukraine. After all, their moderation from the territory of the Russian Federation causes irreparable damage to the national interests of Ukraine, imposes its narratives and spreads fakes on the territory of our state!
Today we received an official response from the Office of the President: “Considering the importance of the issues raised in the petition for public life and national security of the state, considerable public attention to it, and also, considering that the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine is responsible for resolving this issue, I addressed the Prime Minister of Ukraine D. Shmygal with a proposal to intensify the work aimed at opening offices of Google (YouTube) and Meta Platforms (Facebook, Instagram) in Ukraine, and immediately renew the appeals and invitations made to these international companies.

We expect action from the offices of the companies Google and Meta! https://petition.president.gov.ua/petition/126642.
