“Google” Headquarters Delegation Arrived in Kyiv

Ukraine requires marking Crimea as part of Ukraine for all search system users

On October 20, Ukraine's first lady, Olena Zelenska, met with a delegation from Google. The main topic of the negotiations was Crimea. Today, Google is exceptionally selective in identifying Crimea with a specific state: for Ukrainian users, Google displays Crimea as the territory of Ukraine, for Russians Russia, for Europe as a disputed territory. And if for Google this policy is evidence of neutrality, then for Ukraine, the Autonomous Republic of Crimea as part of Ukraine and Crimeans, it is a matter of national identity and the life of the state.

Zelenska and her team discussed this key issue with Google, and we hope, soon, Google users in the Kremlin, St Petersburg and Siberia will see Crimea under the yellow-blue flag.
