Russia will not allow "Borat" to be shown in the country because the film "contains material that some viewers may consider offensive to certain nationalities and religions," Yury Vasyuchkov of the licensing body was quoted in local press. Its prospects for release in Kazhakstan were doubtful, but this decision was somewhat of a surprise. It’s believed that it is the first time that a non-pornographic movie has been banned by Russia’s licensing body. A distribution subsidiary of Fox could appeal, but its prospects for release are considered unlikely.
