Ukraine plans new bill to ban some Russian music from public listening

President Zelenskiy’s Ukrainian government has agreed to ban some Russian music as part of a ‘derussification’ process by introducing a new bill that restricts media created or performed by Russian citizens after 1991.

Any Russian music made after 1991 will be banished from television, radio, public transport and more, encouraging wider use of the Ukrainian language.

This new law means 40% more Ukrainian songs will be played on the radio and an increase in the use of the Ukrainian language in daily programmes to 75%.

As reported by BBC – Ukrainian parliament held a vote in which 303 out of a total 405 members agreeing to ban some Russian media from Ukraine, stating it will “minimize the risks of possible hostile propaganda through music in Ukraine and increase the volume of national music products in the cultural space,”

This new law, along with another banning books in the Russian language, are awaiting sign-off from Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
