Employees of the leadership of the SBU in the Transcarpathia region announced an official warning to the acting deputy of the Khust regional council (Transcarpathian region) from the Opposition Bloc Vitaly Dulkay because of his posts on Facebook, which are considered to be anti-Ukrainian.

The local activist Vitaly Gregor complained about the deputy to law enforcement bodies, reports “Zakarpatye online”.

In the answer of law enforcement bodies it is said that they took measures against Vitaly Dulkay. It is stated that the reason for this is the repeated spreading by the deputy on his Facebook personal page of provocative publications in Russian, which were called Ukrainophobic.

In particular, the photos from his posts on his page reference “territorial miscomprehension”, and in one post participants of Euromaidan are called a “herd of sheep”.

The leadership of the SBU reported that the deputy “was officially warned not to commit any actions that can lead to the commission of crimes against the foundations of Ukraine’s national security”. After that Vitaly Dulkay removed these publications.

It was also reported that earlier the deputy shared posts on his page that include forbidden communist symbols. The activist also complained about it, however information about this appeal was sent from the SBU to the Transcarpathian police for a reaction according to investigative jurisdiction.
