In the Russian Federation, publishers are urged to remove “incorrect” references to Ukraine and Kyiv from all school textbooks. At the same time, employees of Russian editorial offices are threatened with dismissal for any manifestation of an anti-war position.
About this writes the publication “Mediazona”.
On condition of anonymity, employees of Prosveshcheniye, one of the largest and oldest publishers of educational and pedagogical literature in the country, reported that on February 24, the authorities informed their subordinates of the course for the “cleansing” of Kyiv and Ukraine. We are talking about such subjects as history, geography and literature.
“That is, we are faced with the task of making it as if Ukraine simply does not exist. It is much worse when the textbook simply does not talk about some country. A person grows up without a knowledge base about some country, and then it is much easier for him to believe in what they tell him about it from TV, “Mediazona quotes one of the publishing house employees.
So, for example, in history textbooks, the mention of Kyiv boils down to the fact that at one time it was the capital of Kievan Rus and it was liberated during the Second World War by the Soviet army. Simply, it is no longer possible to talk about any independence of Ukraine as a country.
Also, it is planned that in the next academic year one of the publishing house’s textbooks will be released without the author’s name on the cover, since the author is a citizen of Ukraine, and his name “frankly hints” at this.
