...who is on vacations (wink, wink) sent me that:
In an interview with the Kyiv-based Interfax news agency in late May, Oleksandra Koval, director of the Ukrainian Book Institute (UBI), estimated that more than 100 million copies of “propaganda books,” including Russian classics, needed to be removed from Ukrainian public libraries. The UBI, according to its own website, “is a government entity, part of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.” The institute’s mission is to shape government policy “in the area of book publishing, promote book reading in Ukraine, support book industry, provide incentives for translations and popularize Ukrainian literature abroad.”
Ah, yes. What it reminds me of?
Absolutely. Russian culture should be removed completely from the West. Like US has to remove Vladimir Zvorykin, Igor Sikorsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky and, of course, Overture 1812 by Tchaikovsky, should all be also removed from the American life, including, of course, Natalie Wood. I have to admit, though, most of the US Congress never heard those names.
