The printed edition of “The 1945 Diaries. The Last Writings,” which is a fragment of a collection of manuscripts by the Third Reich’s chief propagandist, Paul Joseph Goebbels, was found by Khabarovsk customs officers in the possession of a 39-year-old Russian woman.

The prohibited literature was found in the possession of a 39-year-old Russian woman

The banned literature was discovered when scanning the luggage of a woman traveling to China through the Pokrovka checkpoint. She told the inspectors that she was carrying the book for personal reading, but she did not know that it was banned in Russia

Customs officers seized the printed publication. The expert examination confirmed that it is a work of the main ideologist of Nazism, the Reich Minister of Public Education and Propaganda of Germany and is included in the Federal List of Extremist Materials. It contains a set of linguistic and psychological signs of justification of discriminatory and violent actions against the group of people “Jews”, singled out on the basis of nationality

Khabarovsk Customs initiated proceedings against the woman for an administrative offense under Article 16.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (failure to comply with prohibitions on the export of goods).

The case was initiated by Khabarovsk Customs

The materials of the case have been transferred to the court
