Chekhov Oleg Tabakov, Acting rector of the Academy of Russian ballet named after Vaganova Nikolai Tsiskaridze, the artistic head of the Mariinsky theatre Valery Gergiev, people's actor of Russia Mikhail Boyarsky.
" in conditions of different conflicts, alas, traditional diplomatic punishment relatively politicians, even businessmen. But the taboo on entry into the country to hundreds of artists and art - This is clearly beyond. This shot is not on political, And on the spiritual and public relations. What will remember and will not forgive, to the 1st of all, citizens of Ukraine ", - said Velieva, which quoted the press service of the OP.

But Russia is not expels them, they just come and love your work. Our film companies, theatres do not declare them that " we will not withdraw Ukrainian actor ". Because all the Russian government understand that nothing is more valuable and important than friendship between Nations cannot be ", - she specified.
