Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada has banned broadcasting of the “films of the aggressor state” produced and/or publicized (demonstrated) for the first time after January 1, 2014.

The bill, entitled “On making changes to the Ukrainian law ‘On cinematography’,” was favored by 237 parliamentarians on March 29.

Having passed the law, the parliamentarians extended the ban to the broadcasting of films made by individuals and companies of the “aggressor state,” popularizing law enforcement agencies or containing propaganda, films made after January 1, 2014, and/or publicized (demonstrated) for the first time after January 1, 2014, an Interfax correspondent reported.
