In a statement posted on its website on Sunday, the Center for National Resistance, which is run by Ukraine's special forces, said the books were seized from public and school libraries.

"In Rovenky (Luhansk region), cases of mass burning of Ukrainian literature in local boiler rooms have been recorded," the statement said.

The so-called "Ministry of Education" of the "LPR" terrorist group sent a list of 365 items to the heads of district state administrations and educational organizations. They were advised to remove these books from their libraries, the statement added.

Ukrainian officials have reported pressure on educators in the occupied territories to adapt school curricula to pro-Russian rhetoric.

Earlier, the director of a school in eastern Ukraine told CNN about Russian troops arriving at her school, forcing her to give away all history textbooks and persuading her to change the curriculum.
