The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has endorsed a draft bill on the termination of the agreement between the Government of Ukraine and the Government of the Russian Federation on scientific and technical cooperation, which was submitted by Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on May 11, 2022. In addition, book imports from Russia and Belarus were banned.
The relevant statement was made by Member of Parliament from the Servant of the People Faction, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Subcommittee on the Rules of Procedure Pavlo Frolov on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Law 0149 terminated the agreement between the Government of Ukraine and the Government of the Russian Federation on scientific an technical cooperation,” Frolov wrote.

In his words, Parliament also endorsed draft bill 7459, which prohibits the import and distribution of printed products from Russia, Belarus and the temporarily occupied territories in Ukraine. As for the printed products in the language of the aggressor state, imported from other countries, the licensing import procedure will be introduced, which used to be applied to the printed products imported from Russia.
