Representatives of Russian culture centers in Ukraine held a press conference on March 5 to express their opposition to the aggressive policy of the Kremlin to “defend” the Russian population, reports Espreso.TV.

The press conference was attended by Yuriy Vakulenko, CEO of the National Museum of Russian Art, Ludmyla Hubianuri, director of the Mikhail Bulgakov Museum, Natalia Tyshayeva, director of the Pushkin Museum, Mykhaylo Reznikovych, general and artistic director of the L. Ukrayinka National Theatre of Russian Drama, and others, reports Espreso. TV.

According to the culture leaders, their institutions have never experienced any pressure or restriction of their rights. They also pointed out that they do not need protection from Moscow and do not wish to be held hostage to the aggressive politics of the Kremlin.

“I have never appealed to Russia for help and I will never do so,” said Hubianuri. Similarly, Reznikovych noted that no one is interfering with theatre workers even though they can feel the tension.

He noted that after Viktor Yanukovych came to power in 2005, “there were attempts to close the theater and the Ministry of Culture led by Oksana Bilozir put some pressure on us. We hope that in light of recent events there will be no recurrence of this” he stated.

As reported on March 3, more than twenty Russian-language writers signed a statement stressing that their rights in Ukraine are not being oppressed and that they do not need any military protection from Russia.
