The Ukrainian book market continued to be an important market for Russian publishers before 2017: even after the attempted annexation of Crimea in 2014 and after the occupation of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. According to the Ukrainian Publishers and Booksellers Association (UPBA), at least 73-75% of the total book market in 2013 were books from Russia. Ukrainian books remained in the minority, accounting for only a quarter of the supply.
Chytomo.com published an article, 50 propaganda books against Ukraine and incitement to hatred against Ukrainians from Russian publishers, that covers information segments of Russian wars aimed to eliminate Ukraine and Ukrainians from World’s map.
We provide a link to this publication and strongly encourage you to read it to draw attention to an issue that remains not only unresolved but even undiscussed.
The problem is that Ukraine, represented by state and non-state (public) institutions and individual representatives of the intellectual elite, does almost nothing to debunk Russian propaganda, Russian historical myth and present to the world true information about the history, culture, traditions and customs of Ukraine and Russia, in particular — Ukrainian-Russian relations.
