DIRECTOR OF UKRAINIAN LIBRARY DETAINED IN MOSCOW

Russian police on Thursday detained the director of a Ukrainian library in Moscow on suspicion of inciting ethnic hatred in the latest twist of the ongoing stand-off between the two nations. The Russian investigative committee said in a statement that it has asked a court to arrest 58-year old Natalya Sharina after the investigators found books in the library that allegedly disseminate “anti-Russian propaganda.” The Library of Ukrainian Literature stocks titles in Russian and Ukrainian, and gets funding from the Moscow city budget.” (via AP)

UKRAINE PROTEST LIBRARY A BREAK FROM THE TENSIONS

“When the fervor flags for the protesters in Ukraine’s capital and they want to get away from the barricades, many head to an improvised library in one of the buildings seized by demonstrators. Shelves with a couple thousand books have been crammed into a hallway of Ukrainian House, an exhibition center and former Lenin museum that protesters took over two weeks ago after attacking it with rocks and firebombs to drive out police who were sheltering there.” (via The Associated Press)
