MOSCOW, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Director-General of Russia’s State Library (formerly Lenin Library), Alexander Visly, has proposed to draw up a legislative provision on removal of the books rehabilitating Nazism from the book stocks of public libraries.
There are no officially formalized instruments today for confiscating books of this kind, contrary to the books that have extremist contents, he said. As a result, library directorates cannot take any legal steps when the libraries receive books, which contain the ideas whitewashing Nazism.
“In all evidence, there’s a need to amend legislation with the clauses that concern the publications and books where Nazism is justified,” Visly said at a session of the United Russia party’s Patriotic Platform.
The meeting was held under the motto saying 'Rehabilitation of Nazism Is a Crime'.
