KIEV, February 5. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada has introduced restrictions to broadcasting films, programs and series about Russia’s armed forces and security agencies.
The parliament adopted a law that prohibits public demonstration of audio and video materials that threaten Ukraine’s national security. The law was adopted by 259 votes, with the required minimum of 226.
Demonstration of such materials on TV, radio or in cinemas "threatens Ukraine’s national security and undermines the morale of the Ukrainian army," the explanatory note said.
The ban will apply to the audio and video materials released after 1991, Mykola Knyazhnitsky, chairman of Rada’s Sub-Committee on Freedom of Speech and Information, said.
The draft law was submitted to the parliament on December 9, 2014 by MP Vadim Denisenko from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc party and Knyazhnitsky.
