Mediazona: “The task before us is to make it look like Ukraine simply does not exist.” Mentions of Kyiv and Ukraine are removed from the textbooks of the Prosveshchenie publishing house

Mediazona, translated from Russian: “The task before us is to make it look like Ukraine simply does not exist.” Mentions of Kyiv and Ukraine are removed from the textbooks of the Prosveshchenie publishing house. “On February 24, Vladimir Putin announced the start of a ‘special operation’ and Russian troops invaded Ukraine. Immediately after that, employees of the Enlightenment group of companies, one of the largest and oldest publishers of educational and pedagogical literature in the country, were urged to remove the ‘incorrect’ references to Ukraine and Kyiv from all school textbooks. ‘Mediazona’ talked with the editors of the publishing house about how the ‘cleansing’ of history, geography and literature is going on.”
