In the Russian Federation you can get a prison term for possession or circulation of books about the Ukrainian liberation movement, nationalism or Holodomor 1932-1933.  This can be seen from a list of the publications on the RF Justice Ministry’s site.

The Federal List of Extremist Material contains the names of 1271 publications prohibited in Russia.  The grounds for banning them is giving in brackets.

From the list one can draw the conclusion that the overwhelming majority of publications are about Nazism, the national liberation movements in the Caucuses and in Ukraine. it is noticeable that there are many publications which are not banned in Ukraine or the world.

There are publications about Holodomor as an act of genocide of the Ukrainian people, as well as material about the crimes of the NKVD, the nationalist leader Stepan Bandera etc.

Here is a list of the books with their numbers in the federal list

1149   Printed publication by Ruslan Viktorovych Chasty “Stepan Bandera. Myths, Legends, Reality”, 2007 (ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 01.12.2011)

1150   Printed publication by Viktor Roog “Youth and nationalism”, 2002  (ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 01.12.2011)

1151  Printed publication “Holodomor 1932-1933 in Ukraine. Material of the criminal case No. 475”  (ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 01.12.2011)

1152  Printed publication by Yury Shapoval, Volodymyr Prystaiko, Vadim Zolotaryov “Cheka – GPU – NKIVD” in Ukraine: people, facts, documents” 1997  (ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 01.12.2011)

1153  Printed publication by Vladimir Vasylenko “Holodomor 1932-1933 in Ukraine as the crime of genocide: legal assessment, 2009”   (ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 01.12.2011)

1154  Printed publication by Vasyl Morochko (the name is in fact Marochko) “The Genocide of the Ukrainians” Series Holodomor 1932-1933 Holodomor 2007  (ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 01.12.2011)

What is interesting is that they were all banned by a ruling of the Meshchansky District Court in Moscow from 1 December 2011.

On 18 May the Russian Supreme Court ruled to dissolve the Association of Ukrainians of the RF and remove them from the Single State Register of Legal Entities.

After this Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement in which it stated that the ruling of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation demonstrated a biased attitude in Russia to the Ukrainian Diaspora.

On 9 April the RF Justice Ministry registered a new Federal National-Cultural Autonomy “Urainians of Russia” to whose founding congress Ukrainian journalists were not admitted, and the Ukrainian Diaspora stated that it had been created without their knowledge.

On 28 May 2012 in Moscow representatives of the Ukrainian Diaspora adopted a decision to create the Ukrainian Congress of Russia, an all-Russian organization of the Russian Ukrainian community.
