Luhansk regional administration head Heorhiy Tuka has been banned from Facebook for a month over a year-old post, he told LB.ua on the phone.

The post for which the governor got banned spoke about a truce. However Tuka believes that it was just a formal reason. "Most likely these were supporters of the Opposition Bloc and the Radical Party complained about me. They do not like it at all that I criticize their alliance in the Severodonetsk city council," he said.

As reported earlier, 24 Severodonetsk city councillors violated the legal procedures by voting to dismiss mayor Kazakov and replace him with Radical Party councillor Hryhoriy Pryheba.
