The parliament of Ukraine has banned music by artists with Russian citizenship from being aired in public in light of the country’s invasion of Ukraine, as per reports.

A measure to that effect was passed by a two-thirds majority in the upper house on Sunday, lawmaker Yaroslav Zhelezniak stated on Telegram. The bill states that the “musical product of the aggressor state [could] influence separatist sentiment in the population.”

In parallel, the import and distribution of books and other printed products from Russia, Belarus and the Russian-occupied territories have been banned. Books from Russia have already been subject to censorship since 2016.
