“We are conducting explanatory work, we need to give them a period to adapt: three months. During this period we will calmly carry out educational measures via television, a list of literature which is banned for use today on the territory of the Russian Federation will be published in media,” said Sergey Aksionov.

Simferopol – Crimeans have to hand in the books which are on the federal list of banned extremist materials within the next three months, reported head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksionov on Tuesday.

Earlier Muslim families from several districts of the peninsula turned to Aksionov with the complaint that their homes had been searched with the goal of confiscating religious literature. The collision arose out of the fact that an entire list of literature which was allowed in Ukraine, is considered banned in Russia. The list of banned religious and extremist books never reached the Crimeans. On Monday Aksionov stated that the measures to search and confiscated banned literature in Crimea have been suspended temporarily.

“We are conducting explanatory work, we need to give them a period to adapt: three months. During this period we will calmly carry out educational measures via television, a list of literature which is banned for use today on the territory of the Russian Federation will be published in media,” said Sergey Aksionov.

He also emphasized that starting January 1 all the procedures for confiscation of banned literature will be carried out in accordance with Russian legislation.

[sic] Crimea became a Russian region after the referendum held in March, at which the majority of the population expressed their will to join Russia. The interim period for Crimea’s integration to Russia will end by January 1, 2015.

    Hand in banned books? But Russia is telling us Ukraine and the West is fascist. Russia is the savior of Christendom and democracy….whatever.

      Yup, that’s it, that is the kgb criminal mafia apes that run russia.
      What I don’t understand is why normal, free people actually believe anything from them. I can understand russians believing russia, but not normal human beings.

      russia always has been a terminal, parasitic disease upon humans.
      russia is ebola.

    Private ownership of firearms should be mandatory for humans that are unfortunate enough to live around russia or russians. As history has proven, humans are not safe around russia or russians, time and time again.

    “Crimea became a Russian region after the referendum held in March, at which the majority of the population expressed their will to join Russia” -Yeah, I seriously doubt the validity of that statement and the “voting” that actually occurred…

    • Edison

      It’s possible that a majority of voters actually favored joining Russia. In May 2013 poll showed 24% favored joining Russia. The massive propaganda, intimidation, and lack of public debate could easily change it from 24% to 51%, but not 97%. Only massive voter boycott and rigged counting could get it that high. So the referendum was a farce for those reasons, but it doesn’t matter because it was illegal by Ukraine’s constitution.

    The cloud of Russia’s oppressive regime is now settling more and more over Crimea. Sad to learn of the Tatars being harrassed, kidnapped, killed, their schools and places of worship shut, properties confiscated. And Putin calls that “saving” them from nazis? Am glad I don’t live there!
