Police from Ukraine detained a resident of Odessa who was carrying greeting cards from the USSR era. For this, the detainee faces criminal prosecution under the article on the prohibition of communist symbols, the press service of the patrol police of the Odessa region said.

It is reported that during the patrol, law enforcement officers noticed a man who, when the police appeared, allegedly abruptly changed the direction of movement. So, an Odessa resident tried to escape and allegedly showed aggression. After he was detained, during a check they found many postcards with “symbols of the communist regime” on him.

The Odessa region police report also states that the man’s actions allegedly show signs of a criminal offense under the article of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, which is punishable for “production and distribution of communist and Nazi symbols.”
