Representatives of European Solidarity headed by Petro Poroshenko prepare the requests to President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky concerning his visit to Oman, permission for entering Ukraine for Russian actor Fedor Dobronravov and Sweden singer Dr Alban as Ivanna Klimpush-Tsyntsadze and Iryna Gerashchenko reported on Facebook.
“While we went to Hutsulshchyna (a historic region in the Western Ukraine's Carpathian Mountains) for Christmas at our own expense; the president at his own expense went to develop the trade and economic and diplomatic relations with Oman…We prepare the request from European Solidarity to President’s Office and Foreign Ministry, who exactly from the representatives of these departments will accompany the head of the state at these official meetings, what issues and with whom will be discussed, which results we should expect,” Klimpush-Tsyntsadze stated.
Her colleague Gerashchenko also expressed dissatisfaction by a number of events in the culture sphere of Ukraine. Particularly, she was outraged by the fact that actor Fedor Dobronravov and singer Dr Alban were allowed to enter Ukraine. The reason of her dissatisfaction lies in the fact that the artists performed in occupied Crimea.
“Europena Solidarity prepared the number of requests to the Security Service and President Zelensky on the violation of Ukrainian legislation and permission of entrance to Ukraine for people who supported the annexation of Crimea, call the peninsula annexed by Russia as disputed territory and performed in occupied Ukrainian land. Particularly, the issue is about Svaty series actor Fedor Dobronravov (the series was returned to broadcasting after the change of authority and now people supporting occupation of Crimea come to our country). And it is about Dr Alban who posted a photo with the president and thanked him that he helped the singer to enter Ukraine bypassing the prohibition,” Gerashchenko stated.
On January 4, the Security Service of Ukraine allowed Russian actor Fedor Dobronravov to enter Ukraine. He was banned since November 2017.
On January 5, Dr Alban, who earlier performed in occupied Crimea, was allowed to enter Kyiv after interference of Zelensky. Sweden singer performed at New Year concert of Kvartal 95. Earlier he was banned from entry.
