KIEV, May 15. /TASS/. Facebook has taken down or blocked some anti-Russian posts and accounts of Ukrainian users for violating rules against "hate speech," said Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of the world's largest social networking service.

Earlier this week a Facebook user from Israel complained of "unfair" blocking of Facebook accounts, including those of top Ukrainian bloggers, and alleged that the content of the Ukrainian segment was moderated by Russian managers.

Zuckerberg said some of the Ukrainian posts, which had been taken down or blocked, contained content that violated Facebook's community standards, including the rule against "hate speech".

"We don't allow content that is overtly hateful, contains ethnic slurs, or incites violence. There were a few posts that tripped that rule, and I think we did the right thing according to our policies by taking down that content," he said.

Zuckerberg also said that Facebook had no office in Russia. He added that the content for the Ukrainian segment is reviewed by a Dublin-based team.
