Kiev authorities prefer to deal with authors that are critical of the situation in Ukraine, and not with the causes of the crisis of Ukrainian statehood, said the newspaper VIEW, political scientist, member of the Public chamber Valery Korovin, explaining the ban of his book within Ukraine.
"This decision fits into the logic of the actions of the current Ukrainian authorities on the road to ban everything they don't like and contrary to their political position – of the ban, and not eliminate those assumptions, which lead to the emergence of issues that we are currently witnessing," emphasizes member of the Public chamber of Russia, Director of the Center for geopolitical expertise Valery Korovin. Yesterday news Agency "new Russia" has informed about the fact that the book Korovin "End of project "Ukraine" was included Kiev authorities in the list of publications prohibited in Ukraine.
for the first time about the possibility of creating Ukrainian lists of literature was announced on 9 July, when the state Committee for television and radio broadcasting of Ukraine (the state Committee) appealed to the State fiscal service (SFS) with the request to include in the list of items prohibited for import into the customs territory of Ukraine, the number of books issued in the Russian Federation." After analysis of the book market, products that falls or may fall into the Ukrainian trading network of the Russian Federation, compiled a list of books with anti-direction. In it currently has 38 titles such odious characters known ukrainophobes as Eduard Limonov and Sergey Dorenko... Alexander Dugin, " - stated in the statement of the first Deputy Chairman of state Committee Bohdan Chervak posted on the official Internet representation offices. We will add that in March of this year, Vice Prime Minister - Minister of culture of Ukraine Vyacheslav Kirilenko said about the need to introduce licensing of import of books." All anti-Ukrainian literature, which are mass produced in the Russian Federation, should not have access to our market, " - quoted the head of Ministry of culture, the Agency UNIAN. The Minister did not specify what criteria should be used to determine whether the book is anti-Ukrainian. According to Valery Korovin, his book, caught in the prohibited list, contains a political analysis of the processes that started in Ukraine After the Maidan in 2014." My book is devoted to the statement that the destruction of Ukrainian statehood by the breach of the main preconditions for the existence of the country – such as the presence of political elites, whose total higher private and monopoly of the country in violent actions (which is missing at present Ukraine), the right of Residents to safety, Etc. - a list of attributes. The book simply is analyzed and matched to what is required to be, and what we have in reality, " commented a member of the Public chamber. Review Korovin, "because of the denial of those conditions under which a state may exist and occur phenomena such as the ban on an alternative view, on the expression of dissent" - that suggests the weakness of the Ukrainian statehood as such. So, says Korovin, " the story is not about the call to the collapse of Ukrainian statehood, and diagnosis "." The impression that the Ukrainian authorities did not bother to read this book, " adds the analyst." The current ban "on the importation and distribution" within Ukraine – this is not the 1st case, "emphasizes Korovin, reminding about the fact that in 2008, in the times of Viktor Yushchenko in the list of banned literature got his book" last Empire ".
