Producer Iosif Prigozhin, complained that many artists were in a terrible situation due to the pandemic coronavirus. He stated “Evening Moscow”.
“Even the first dozen of the most popular stars today, almost a curse, because they all lost the opportunity to earn,” — said Prigogine, adding that now the artists are forced to “eat away what was possible in his time to save”.
According to him, in such a situation are currently musicians, dancers, actors and circus performers. Thus, according to the producer, the situation will improve not earlier than six months. Prigogine also added that, most likely, even after the removal of all restrictions on the holding of mass events the audience does not immediately begin to buy tickets for concerts.
The producer said that artists, like other citizens, pay taxes, and the state should return them the money if they find themselves in a difficult situation and need support.
Earlier in may, Russian actor Sergey Glushko, known as Tarzan, complained about the lack of money during the period of self-isolation of coronavirus. According to Glushko, his only business — fitness centre — closed due to restrictions on the background of the pandemic.
