KyivPost.com writes that the law (signed April 2 by President Petro Poroshenko) bans the broadcast of
- movies—apparently defined to include TV programs—"'that glorify the government,' military, law enforcement and other 'punitive agencies of the aggressor state … that were made since August 1, 1991,'"
- "all Russian movies made since January 1, 2014, almost two months before Russia invaded Ukrainian's Crimean peninsula," and
- "movies with actors who pose a national security threat with their actions or public statements"; "[t]he list of actors will be approved and published by a special commission of the State Film Agency of Ukraine."
