Ukrainians harshly criticized the Kiev official for sympathy for the USSR Photo: press service of the Kiev city administration
Director of the Department of Education of the Kiev City Administration Elena Fidanyan was heavily criticized after the publication of a post about life in the Soviet Union.
The official posted on her Facebook a photo of a Soviet schoolboy drinking soda from a vending machine. Fidanyan wrote about the availability of benefits for a person in the USSR, recalling that there was no coronavirus in the Soviet Union, people were not afraid to drink tap water, a glass of water with syrup cost 3 kopecks, and a bus and metro ride cost 5 kopecks.
The nostalgic post sparked a storm of discontent in the comments below. So, some called for the immediate dismissal of an employee of the Kiev City Administration, others suspected her of participating in the “information war”. One of the subscribers said that after such publications, the education system of Ukraine can be considered doomed.
“Tell me where to file a complaint against such a“ department director ”? I have a schoolboy child. I don’t need such bosses as teachers, ”wrote a user under the nickname Marina.
“The fact that the director of the education department of the capital of a European state writes this is a disaster,” added another subscriber.
We will remind, earlier in Ukraine it was proposed to decommunize popular Soviet dishes, urging to impose a special tax on them. Last year, the republic called upon to throw out Soviet medicines – brilliant green, iodine, hydrogen peroxide, Vishnevsky’s ointments and “Zvezdochka” from the first-aid kit.
