The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy (MCIP) has initiated the establishment of an Expert Council on Decommunization and De-russification at the department to ensure that the de-russification process takes place within the legal framework.
This was announced by Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko at a briefing in Kyiv on June 10, Suspilne reports.
It is an advisory body that will take care of de-russification, decommunization, and decolonization, the Minister explained.
"According to the law, the Ministry of Information Policy cannot rename streets, dismantle monuments, or recommend theaters to abandon russian classics on its own. In the case of streets, it is the responsibility of local councils. For the process of de-russification and decommunization to take place within the legal framework, it is important that local authorities have expert councils, like the one at the MCIP," Tkachenko said.
According to him, the composition of the expert council is already known. It will be made public soon.
"We already have a number of invited experts to join the Council, the document will be signed today (June 10 – Ed.)," Tkachenko added.
As IMI reported, on June 7, a council was set up at the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy and the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory to work on de-russification, decommunization, and decolonization.
The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine is working to remove russian propagandist literature from libraries and replace it with high-quality Ukrainian-language literature and books from Ukrainian publishers.
