Russia vs. The Simpsons

A brief history of this cultural conflict:

"The claimant says that the cartoon is filled with propaganda of violence, drugs and sex

The Simpsons Found Not Guilty by Russian Court
"A Moscow court has ruled that a complaint by a Muscovite who wanted the world-famous cartoons The Simpsons and Griffins to be banned from Russian TV was baseless."

Russian Court Says 'Nyet' to 'Simpsons' Suit
"We're not sure how 'Woo-hoo!' translates to Russian, but that's the general reaction from the Russian broadcaster of "The Simpsons" after beating a lawsuit related to the show."

Russian Censors Fuming Over The Simpsons
"Russian MPs have issued a final threat to TV stations to scale back on violent shows like The Simpsons if they want to avoid censorship."
