President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko says he cannot possibly support the electronic petition registered on the website of the Presidential Administration against blocking the VKontakte social network.

This is said in the President's answer posted on the website of the President of Ukraine, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Anatolii Tkachenko, the author of the electronic petition against blocking the social network, notes that VKontakte is a huge advertising platform, which helps promote national products and content. In his opinion, the loss of the platform will affect Ukrainian producers of any kind of goods and providers of services.

In his answer President Petro Poroshenko highlights the links of the owner of the Russian social network with Russian secret services that collect information about Ukrainian citizens with the help of the social network.

"The Russian holding Mail.ru Group, which incorporates limited liability companies Mail,RU Group, VKontakte, Mail.ru Ukraine, V Kontakte, and the group of companies Yandex and some other internet companies are widely used by Russian secret services for promoting Russian propaganda and special information operations against Ukraine and its citizens," reads the answer.

President Poroshenko says supporting the electronic petition against blocking the VKontakte social network is impossible.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the electronic petition was registered on May 16 and has been signed by more than 25,000 citizen.

President Poroshenko enacted Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council's decision to impose sanctions on 1,228 individuals and 468 legal entities on May 16.

In particular, the decision bans internet service providers from granting access to the Mail.ru, VKontakte, Odnoklassniki, and Yandex services.
