Ukraine has imposed restrictions on the import and distribution of publishing products from Russia, Belarus and the temporarily occupied territories of the country. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed the relevant law.

“I have signed the Law “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine on Restrictions on the Import and Distribution of Publishing Products Relating to the Aggressor State, the Republic of Belarus, and the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine”. I believe the law is correct,” he said.

The text of the law was also sent to the institutions of the European Union. They will have to provide an additional assessment of whether its provisions may affect the fulfilment of obligations in protecting minority rights, including language rights, in the context of the recommendation of the European Commission’s Opinion on Ukraine’s application for EU membership.
