Pornography in Ukraine

Today's Moscow Times notes that the President of Ukraine has signed a law to prohibit production, import, sale and demonstration of pornographic materials. (Sounds like purchase and possession remain legal, similar to the situation under alcohol prohibition in the US. What do you suppose "demonstration" of pornographic materials consists of?) "The law also prohibits the promotion of war, national and religious enmity, fascism and neo-fascism." Neo-neo-fascists are breathing more easily. Incidentally, I seem to recall that President Kuchma also recently said that he fears next year's Ukrainian elections, because they will be so corrupt. (Hey, is he promoting national enmity?)
