This was stated by European Commissioner for Justice Vera Yurova in an interview with the publication of the publication Bild am Sonntag, reports  Deutsche Welle.

"I demand from Facebook further explanations, for example, to what extent this has affected European users," she said.

According to her, "this abuse of the data of 50 million Facebook users is completely unacceptable."

Yurov also stressed that the government and responsible US agencies assured the EU that they "take all the charges extremely seriously and work on preparing the necessary measures."

"This scandal should be a signal for all of us. The way we treat our own personal data can have massive consequences." Finally, it's about the foundations of our democracy, "Yurov said.
