Anna Karenina was banned in Ukraine because of Russian language

Summary of Disinformation

Leo Tolstoy was banned in Ukraine because of the language of the aggressor.


No evidence given. Anna Karenina in Russian language is not banned in Ukraine. It was only one local theatre in Khmelnytskyi that couldn't agree on the date when Anna Karenina could be played in the city.

Further debunking by the Insider.
