The SBU Security Service of Ukraine has prevented the imports of printed materials charged with anti-Ukrainian narratives.
Operatives established that a Kyiv resident, who is a book dealer, had ordered books from the Russian Federation for their sale in Ukraine, while failing to report the goods to customs. The woman was set to receive the batch via an international postal service delivery, as reported by the SBU's press center.
The SBU said after the books were revealed at one of Kyiv's customs offices, they were sent for an examination by a regulator, the State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting.
According to the inspection, the print belongs to the list of books, whose content is aimed at eliminating Ukraine's independence, promoting violence, inciting ethnic, racial, religious hatred, committing terror attacks, and encroaching on human rights and freedoms.
The authorities are now deciding on charges against the importer.
