Kyrylenko says that the Culture Ministry jointly with State TV and Radio Broadcasting Committee suggests the introduction of the so-called "automatic licensing" and explained the idea. "As soon as there is a report that a book published by a Russian publishing house and aimed at inciting ethnic hatred and undermining Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity has crossed the border, the produce should be seized and the publishing house should be sanctioned, and prohibited from selling its products in Ukraine."

He said a tentative list of Russian publishing houses has already been drawn up.
