Ukraine wants to introduce fines for listening to Russian music

In Ukraine, they want to introduce fines for listening to Russian music in public places.

The Verkhovna Rada adopted bill No. 9547, which states that for public performance, display, demonstration, notification in trade, public catering, services, musical phonograms, videograms, music videos, their elements, other works, the distribution of which is prohibited, available:

  • a fine from 300 to 500 tax-free minimum incomes of citizens - from 5,100 to 8,500 hryvnias;
  • for repeated violation - from 1,000 to one 1,500 tax-free minimum incomes of citizens - from 17,000 to 25,500 hryvnias.

Earlier, on June 19, 2022, the Law "On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine on Supporting the National Musical Product and Restricting the Public Use of the Musical Product of the Aggressor State" was adopted. Such changes are necessary to eradicate the separatist sentiments of the population, which can be created precisely through culture.

– Such products were often in their essence information special operations aimed at weakening our state. That is why effective measures should be taken to limit the musical product of the aggressor state on the territory of Ukraine, the explanatory note says.

According to Article 15 of the Law of Ukraine "On Culture", it is also prohibited to publicly perform phonograms, videograms and show music videos in which citizens of the Russian Federation take part.

The problem is that there is no effective punishment for such actions in the legislation. If, for example, a conflict occurs between Ukrainians while listening to Russian music, then the police can draw up an administrative protocol and only if there are all suitable grounds for this. That is why the Rada adopted bill No. 9547, which can solve this problem.
