Reuters reports that parliament leaders in Ukraine’s heavily pro-Russian Crimean peninsula on Monday ordered that the American soap opera "Santa Barbara" be broadcast with Russian, rather than Ukrainian dubbing. Some 500 Crimean Communists demonstrated last week in Simferopol, the region’s main city, denouncing the replacement of a Russian-dubbed "Santa Barbara" with a Ukrainian one.
