Ultra.Kultura (Russian: Ультра.Культура) was a Russian counterculture book publisher.

History[edit]

In 2003 Ilya Kormiltsev founded publishing house Ultra.Kultura and managed it as the editor-in-chief since 2003 until his death in 2007. Ultra.Kultura became notorious in 2004, when Russian authorities accused it with propaganda of drug use and terrorism.[1][2] In 2006 all copies of the combined Ultra.Kultura edition of Adam Parfrey's Apocalypse Culture and Apocalypse Culture II were sought by authorities, and most were seized and submitted to flames, owing to the book's inclusion of an essay by David Woodard that was alleged to promote recreational ketamine use.[3]

Series[edit]

Authors[edit]

Ultra.Kultura was known for publishing "controversial" authors and books related to far-left and far-right extremism.[4] Ultra.Kultura published essays of National Bolshevik Party leader Eduard Limonov when he was imprisoned.[5][6]
