Ukrainian TV channels dub only small number of Russian films

In Ukraine, legislation from January 2008 requires films to be dubbed. However, cinemas continue to broadcast Russian films with the original soundtrack.
TV-channels either synchronize or dub only a small number of Russian films — all others are shown with Ukrainian subtitles.
 
One member of the ruling party says the existence of the law violates the rights of Russian-speaking people in Ukraine. And their number in the country is more than 25% of the population — 12 million out of 48 million. He calls for broadcasts to be allowed in Russian without dubbing, and even foreign films dubbed in Russian to be shown as well.
