Poroshenko Enacts Ban on All Films, TV Shows That Glorify Russian Military

KIEV – Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko passed on Thursday a law that bans the broadcasting of any Russian audiovisual material that “glorifies the armed and security (forces) of the aggressor state.”

The ban equally prohibits all Russian films and television shows that have started production since the beginning of 2014.

The law, passed by the Ukrainian Parliament, Verkhovna Rada, on Feb. 5, affects the entire corpus of Russian cinema filmed after the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, and prohibits any content that positively depicts the Russian Army.

The text of the law stipulates that screening such content in Ukrainian cinemas and television “threatens the national security of Ukraine and morally damages the Ukrainian Army.”

Late last January, the Ukrainian legislature declared Russia as an “aggressor state,” considering that Moscow “supports terrorism” by supporting pro-Russian separatist rebels against Kiev in the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk.

According to the latest UN report, more than 6,000 people have died during the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
