KIEV, August 11. /TASS/. Ukraine has banned a total of 376 Russian films and TV series over the past year, director of Ukraine’s State Cinema Agency Filipp Ilyenko said on Tuesday.
"Since August 2014, the Agency has denied or cancelled distribution certificates for 376 Russian films and TV series," he said, adding that the agency’s expert commission had analyzed a total of 553 Russian films and TV series over the past year. "We scrutinize films and TV series to see whether they violate the law banning popularization of the aggressor state and Soviet-era security agencies or not," he said.
Along with the ban on films, Ukraine’s Ministry of Culture has drawn a list of people of culture banned to enter the country for their actions that "pose a threat to national security." Apart from that, Ukraine State Television and Radio Broadcasting Committee issued a list of 38 books written by Russian authors to be banned in the country.
