RIGA, August 19 /TASS/. Russian books banned in Ukraine can be found in Latvian shops because it is impossible to ban them under existing Latvian laws, the Latvian Security Police said on Wednesday.
"A huge number of propaganda books has been printed in Russia of late," the press service said adding that the Latvian Security Police was paying special attention to Russian books, which were appearing on local bookshelves.
The Latvian Security Police have called on Latvians to be critical of the books’ content and compare it to the real events.
"We have serious fears that the true objective of these publications is to strengthen a more beneficial stance for Russia in interpreting politics and history," the Latvian Security Police explained.
The previous Latvian media reports said that more than half of books by Russian authors that had been banned in Ukraine were freely available in one of the local book chains.
The chain’s management said, in turn, that its outlets did not sell unacceptable literature such as anti-religious books, for example. Books describing the events in Ukraine are sold uncensored in Latvian bookshops, the chain’s director, Elena Bystrova, said.
