The Rada supported the ban on Russian music

The ban concerns the performance of Russian music in Ukrainian media and public places

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine approved the ban on Russian music in Ukrainian media and public places, MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak said on Telegram.

303 people voted for the ban MP from 450, he specified.

At the end of May, deputies from the presidential party “Servant of the People” submitted to the Rada a bill banning the public performance of Russian music, as well as the tour of Russian performers. According to the initiative, the reproduction of phonograms, videos and music videos that “contain a fixed performance of a musical non-dramatic work with lyrics, performed by a singer (singer) who is or was a citizen of [Russia] in any period after 1991” is not allowed.


An exception was made for the works of performers who were currently or at the time of death citizens of Ukraine or had no citizenship.

Prior to this, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy prepared a sanctions list of Russian performers, actors, directors and journalists, which included, among others, Nikolai Baskov, Dima Bilan, Oleg Gazmanov, Sergei Zhukov, Grigory Leps, Nikolai Rastorguev and Timati (Timur Yunusov), Vladimir Mashkov, Marat Basharov, Nikita Mikhalkov. The Ukrainian authorities believe that they support the Russian military operation.

In addition, the parliament banned the import and distribution of books and other publishing products from Russia, from the “temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine”; and from Belarus (306 supported). In mid-March, the Ukrainian State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting imposed a ban on the import and distribution of Russian publishing products.
