RIGA, 15 Nov – RIA Novosti. The actors loved the audience not with their political statements and opinions, and talent, and make them in all sorts of black lists is wrong, said being on tours in the Riga Russian theatre and film Director Kirill Serebrennikov.
“This is absolute nonsense! This should not be. Artists — people unrestrained. Someone might say stupid, maybe today one position to adhere to, tomorrow — another. And they should not be seen as messengers of the political will of the state. A weak man, and you shouldn’t pay attention. Artists love not for their political statements. I think I can discern these things. The only thing I would not forgive the actor if he tortured Pets. Now that’s disgusting,” said silver reporters on Tuesday.
Earlier in the list of banned in Latvia had been included Russian actor Dmitry Pevtsov. As reported the Minister of internal Affairs Richard Kozlowski, Singers were included in the black list, based on the opinion of the competent law enforcement agencies.
Previously in Latvia was denied entry to the singers Oleg Gazmanov, Joseph Kobzon, Valeria and the actors Mikhail Porechenkov and Ivan Okhlobystin.
