The State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine (Goskomteleradio) on Wednesday said that it banned the importation from Russia a text book on the English language, which allegedly contains a fragment glorifying Joseph Stalin.

The decision was made on the basis of the conclusion of the expert council of the State Committee for Television and Radio for Analysis and Evaluation of Publishing Products – the report says. 

The ministry explained that the book contains a text that is dedicated to “glorifying the dictatorial methods of Stalin,” and, in the manual, there is a fragment about the history of Russia, which states that “the first Russian state included Kiev, Novgorod, Vladimir.”

Which it did.
