According to lawyer Ivan Pavlov, who refers to "a reliable source in the Moscow government," the Department of the National Policy of the city is already looking for relevant institutions to redistribute the book collection, planning to create a multi-media center of the East Slavic peoples instead of the library.
It is noted that the attempts to obtain official confirmation of this information from the Department of Culture and Department of National Policy of Moscow have not yet succeeded.
It was reported earlier that a search was conducted in the Library of Ukrainian Literature Dec. 15. Head of the institution Natalia Sharina is accused of distributing extremist literature. The Investigation Committee has identified the case as a major crime.
