Ukraine rejected two Russian publishing offices to give permission for import of two books, which comprise propaganda of the aggressor state, as State Committee for television and radio broadcasting of Ukraine reports.
In particular, a textbook on the English language by Gazkevych, which was to be imported in Ukraine from Russia, has texts for translation from English which say that Kyiv was the capital of Russia. Moreover, other historical facts are falsified in the book.
According to the experts, it is a manifestation of propagandist and manipulative techniques of the aggressor state.
The other book – “Spies: 12 women who risked it all” – has propaganda of the aggressor state, in particular, its security agencies.
Reportedly, on May 22, 2017 the order of Ukraine’s Government which says the distributors of publishing products from Russia and temporary occupied territories of Ukraine should get a permission from the State Committee for television and radio broadcasting for import, came into force.
As of August 7, 2018 since May 22, 2017 Ukraine’s Committee for television and radio broadcasting issued permission for import to 18,826 items of publishing products from Russia and temporary occupied territories of Ukraine.
At the same time, Ukraine’s Committee for television and radio broadcasting has denied importing 235,500 copies with anti-Ukrainian content 63 times. Besides, it canceled one permit issued earlier.
