Kathleen McCook: Book Purges as Weapon of War
Original Blog Post K. McCook Refers To RE: Censorship in Wartime
Translated Interview With Ukrainian Book Institute Director
"As for Pushkin and Dostoevsky, beloved by our librarians and some readers, it should be said that these two authors laid the foundations of the "Russian peace" and messianism. Filled with these narratives from childhood, people believe that the mission of the Russian people is not to deal with their lives and their country, but to "save" the world against their will. This is actually very harmful literature, it can really influence people's views. Therefore, my personal opinion is that these books should also be removed from public and school libraries."
