Actor Nikita Dzhigurda live YouTube channel “vs Vласть Vлащенко” called Crimea part of the Ukrainian territory, RIA Novosti reported.
“Legally, the Ukrainian Crimea is actually Russian, that’s my position,” he said. The chair added that he was allegedly repeatedly offered in exchange for the recognition by the Russian to give the “green light” in show business and invite political programs.
The actor stressed that he was proud of his Ukrainian citizenship and stated that he allegedly offered Russian citizenship for refusal from the Ukrainian.
Earlier, the Russian singer Natalia ionov, acting under the pseudonym of Glucose, called the Ukrainian Crimea. The singer arrived from Minsk to the airport “Borispol”, where she was denied entry into the country. During the conversation, the artist asked the question: “How do you feel about the occupation of the Crimea?” She said that has nothing to do with it, but for her the possibility of going to Ukraine is much more important than politics. Later she called the Ukrainian Peninsula.
Crimea became part of Russia in 2014, after a referendum in which the majority of respondents supported this decision. In the same year, the United States, European Union and some other countries have introduced sanctions against Russia due to the annexation of the Peninsula. Kiev considers the territory annexed and accuses Moscow of violating the rights of the Crimean Tatars. Russian authorities deny these accusations.
