Advertising passenger travels to Russia and the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine has been banned in the city of Izium, Kharkiv region, according to the city’s website.
This decision was unanimously adopted by members of the Executive Committee of Izium City Council at the meeting on September 12, 2016.
“From now any advertising passenger travels to the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, the settlements of the Russian Federation, as well as leisure in the annexed Crimea, placed on stationary ad facilities, overpasses, outer surface of buildings, structures, transport, and public transport stops is prohibited during the ATO period,” says the statement.
As noted, the local public organizations asked the Izium Mayor Valeria Marchenko to ban such advertising, motivating their initiative by the fact that such advertising leads to an exacerbation of social tension in the city, incites people to oppose and humiliate their dignity and patriotism.
Just a reminder: On August 11, the Executive Committee of the Vinnytsia City Council officially forbidden to place any ads of recreation in Crimea and passenger travels to the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas.
On July 27, the MPs of the Dnipro City Council adopted a decision to ban advertising passenger travels and recreation in the annexed peninsula. The initiative was supported by the city of Kremenchug on September 1.
