Ukraine bans 'Bruno'

Culture Ministry labels film as 'immoral'

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukraine's Culture Ministry says it has banned Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie, "Bruno," because it's immoral.

The movie is centered around the adventures of a flamboyant gay fashion journalist from Austria.

The ministry said Wednesday that Baron Cohen's depictions of sexual organs, homosexual intercourse and language are obscene and improper.

Some Austrian officials have spoken out against the film, but have not taken any action against it.

Baron Cohen's previous movie "Borat" ridiculed the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan and the U.S. Kazakhstan and Russia banned "Borat."
