Parliament refused on Thursday to include in the agenda a bill to ban Ukraine the concept of «Russian world» and to recognize its «form of Nazism,» however, this issue can be considered later.

The inclusion of the bill in the agenda of the current session no evening session on Thursday was supported by 196 MPs with the necessary minimum of 226 votes.

Initially the document was not on the agenda of Parliament on Thursday, however, a number of MPs demanded it be added. Inclusion is a technical solution and does not necessarily mean consideration of the document on this day.

Russian world — the concept of international community, whose members United in their commitment to Russia and in General — to the Russian language and culture. The Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill has already pointed out that the «Russian world» is both a «Ukrainian world, and the Belarusian world, the world of all Russia», «this world, which is created through baptism in the river, this is the world of Prince Vladimir, is a system of values, which penetrated into the culture, into the life of our people.»

Amendments to the law «About the condemnation of the Communist and national socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and the prohibition of propaganda of their symbols» (relative to the condemnation and prohibition of the «Russian world» in Ukraine) was registered in the Ukrainian Parliament under No. 9139. The amendments propose to consider the representatives of «Petro Poroshenko’s Block» and extra fractional deputies.

They suggest in particular at the legislative level to recognize that the «Russian world» is alleged «form of national socialism (Nazism), «the Russian neo-Imperial geopolitical, cultural-historical idea of the international community, United to Russia’s involvement and commitment to the Russian language and culture, under the slogan of unity and protection of carriers of the Russian language and culture, the Orthodox faith, common historical memory and common views on social development».

The bill also proposes to prohibit any advocacy of the «Russian world» in Ukraine, including through the dissemination of information that «the Russian Orthodox Church — the basis of universal Orthodoxy and the only Church that has preserved the authentic faith, and use such ideology as a basis for unification of the Ukrainian and Russian peoples».

In Ukraine constant calls to ban everything that is somehow related to Russia or Russian language.

So, in September, the Lviv regional Council decided to ban public use of «Russian-speaking cultural product» in the region. Also will be a special working group, whose members will conduct «outreach» with the public. Lviv deputies plan to distribute the bill to all Ukraine. In particular, they want to appeal to colleagues from the Verkhovna Rada with a proposal to ban public reproduction of «audiovisual works» in the Russian language.

In response, the Deputy head of the largest in the Ukrainian Parliament faction «Block of Petro Poroshenko» Alexey Goncharenko suggested deputies of the Lviv regional Council to ban the «East wind».

In addition, it is prohibited to import to Ukraine of a number of books from Russia. At the end of 2016, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed a law on the mechanism of limiting access to the Ukrainian market of printed products «anti-Ukrainian content» from Russia. Now for import to Ukraine of printed materials requires the approval of the state Committee.

Also, Kiev has repeatedly limited the work of Russian media in the country, including regularly banning entry to Ukraine to journalists from Russia. In March 2015, was suspended accreditation at the bodies of state power of Ukraine 115 Russian media in Ukraine also banned broadcasting of the main Russian TV channels.
