The Emir of Customizatio: Ramil Sitdikov / RIA Novosti
Serbian filmmaker and musician Emir Kusturica spoke about possible sanctions for speaking in Crimea on the eve of his concert in Yalta on August 22. His words RIA Novosti reported.
“I’m not the only artist who arrives in the Crimea with the concert, so that’s not the concern. In General, life has meaning when there is freedom — freedom to do what you want, and nothing to fear. I always act as I see fit,” — said Kusturica.
He also did not dismiss the possibility of implementing one of the future projects on the Peninsula, but said he will seriously think on this score only after finishing work on a painting that is going to shoot in China.
Kusturica has already performed with his band the No Smoking Orchestra in Yalta on July 24. After that, he appeared in the database of the site “Peacemaker” as an enemy of Ukraine.
In November 2016, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin presented the Serbian film, the order of Friendship.
