Broader ban on Russian films comes into effect in Ukraine

Amendments to the Law "On Cinematography", prohibiting the demonstration of Russian films produced not only prior to January 1, 2014, but after this date as well, come into force in Ukraine on Friday, April 22.

On March 29, the Ukrainian parliament with 237 votes approved relevant draft law No.3350, which had been submitted by MP Viktoria Syumar.
