Ukraine bans Russian music in media and public places

The Verkhovna Rada adopted a law banning Russian music in the media and public places. This was stated by the deputy Yaroslav Zheleznyak.

The law on “restricting the public use of the musical product of the aggressor state” was signed by 303 deputies. The law concerns the display of "phonograms, videograms and music videos".

The requirement applies to songs by performers who have had Russian citizenship since 1991. The rule does not apply to those who have renounced Russian citizenship and become a citizen of Ukraine.

In addition, the Rada adopted a law prohibiting the distribution of books and other publishing products from Russia, Belarus and the occupied territories of Ukraine.
