Claiming Brüno will “damage the moral upbringing of our citizens,” the conservative backward government of the Ukraine, announced it objects to the nudity and gay sex depicted in the movie, deeming it unfit for release.

What could they possibly be talking about? This "naked" photo taken at Brüno's Berlin premiere
The Dailymail.co.uk reports a culture ministry commission concluded Brüno, the Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy about a gay Austrian fashion reporter, included an “artistically unjustified exhibition of sexual organs and sexual relations, homosexual acts in a blatantly graphic form, obscene language, sadism, anti-social behavior which could damage the moral upbringing of our citizens.”

The ex-Soviet state, where conservative views on homosexuality still prevail, had already banned Borat, Cohen's previous satire aimed at demasking bigotry and anti-Semitism in the United States.

Cohen's new incarnation travels to the United States to fulfill his dream of being “the biggest Austrian superstar since Hitler.”

Lines like that, as well as his explicit sexuality, gay sex scenes and nudity have shocked some.

But the film has proven popular in the United States and Britain, where it reached the top of the box offices during its weekend premiere.

If ignorance is bliss, then the citizens of the Ukraine should be very happy indeed!
