Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Vyacheslav Kyrylenko suggested that Ukrainian performing artists that tour in Russia should be obliged to inform about their trips and pay an additional fee for Ukrainian military, as he wrote on his Twitter.
Kyrylenko believes that forbidding performers artists to give concerts in Russia isn’t admissible, but instead, they should pay an additional fee for the Ukrainian military.
“As to our touring artists in Russia. It’s true that the issue is mostly ethical, we can’t forbid it. But if you go on tour to Russia, you 1)inform; 2)get onto special register list; 3)on TV, during the performance or music video, there’s an inscription “this artist is touring in the aggressor country”; 4) you pay an additional military fee in Ukraine,” Kyrylenko wrote on Twitter.
Previously the National Broadcasting Council suggested introducing criminal responsibility for such artists, or a fine.
