MOSCOW, 12 August – RIA Novosti. The head of the Crimean Public Chamber Grigory Ioffe responded to the words of the singer Laima Vaikule, who stated that she did not intend to perform in Crimea for any commission.
Ioffe urged the artist not to consider the situation from the peninsulas "through the stock exchange", since the work "is not measured in the silversmiths".
"You can not play in the Crimea, but you can understand what's going on." And the approach to the Crimean problem at the sales level is intolerable, "Ioffe said.
At the same time, he said that in the near future Vaikule would be included in the Crimea dossier by the monitoring group's decision.
Ioffe also added that for many years he was a connoisseur of the singer's work.
Previously in the public chamber of the peninsula was compiled the "Crimean dossier", in which they intend to include those who do not recognize the choice of residents of the republic in the referendum in March 2014.
The Crimea became the Russian region following the results of a referendum held after a coup in Ukraine, where 96.77% of voters in Crimea and 95.6% of Sevastopol voted for reunification with Russia .
For no cost
At the beginning, Vaikule said during his stay in Odessa that he did not intend to perform in the Crimea, at whatever cost he was offered.
"No. We are forbidden, we Europeans," said the artist.
At the same time, Vaikule defended his colleagues, who were in Ukraine on the "black lists".
The director of the artist Alexei Yakovlev, commenting on his words, noted that "everyone brings this affirmation to the best of their depravity". He also defined this situation as "swollen and convoluted".
The producer and partner of singer Andrei Latkovsky, in turn, noted that Vaikule simply observes the law.
"If it is forbidden to cross the road to the red light, it will not go, if it is impossible, she will not go, and if it is possible, then with pleasure <…> He is a normal person, he loves Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and America – everything, "he added.
Tears will not be
The Deputy of the State Duma of Crimea Ruslan Balbek also commented on the words of Vaikule.
According to him, the peninsula is not disturbed by the fact that the singer does not intend to perform in the Crimea. At the same time, he noted that no one intends to include it in the "black lists".
"The words that we, the Europeans, are forbidden to go there is a kind of demonstrative lie." However, the singer probably does not know that Europeans are just driving the crowds – and they are talking and talking to people, "- said the deputy.
Balbek also noted that the Crimean criminals were convinced that there are friends of the peninsula, that there are enemies. Moreover, according to him, there is the third category that awaits the team.
"Vaikule has not yet obtained the team from either side," concluded a member of the lower house of parliament.
