Ukraine Bans Russian Books, Music & Opposition Party

For what it’s worth, Ukraine has taken the stance that they are at war and that the threat is an existential one – which is why we’ve seen the all-hands-on-deck style approach that Ukraine has taken, along with the memes of farmers in tractors recovering damaged Russian tanks. However, in modern warfare, the field is not the only place where fighting takes place. We are seeing increasing amounts of unconventional warfare; be it cyber, economic, or information. One particularly important component is the battle for hearts and minds. In that sense, Ukraine’s move to limit Russian-derived propaganda and media can be seen as a preemptive move to curtail the latter’s capabilities in this particular battlespace.
