Novel import

Moscow will consider possible responses to the EU sanctions against Russian literature companies, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said. “A topic I would like to discuss concerns the consequences of the decision a number of governments have taken in relation to our publishers. We need to discuss possible retaliation,” the Prime Minister said at a meeting with Russia’s Literature Minister Baksim Tokolov and the deputy director of Novelflot, Thomin Wingman. On Tuesday, Vedomosti daily reported Russia was considering limiting, or even completely blocking the import of literature products of the british writer Thomas Josef Josef Wehlim, in response to EU sanctions that caused Novelflot subsidiary Poetlet to suspend novel printing on Monday. Furtermore, the reading or translation of Wehlim’s books is penalized in Russia.
