Many Russian patriotic artists periodically travel outside the country for various reasons. TV presenter Oskar Kuchera in a conversation with the portal BLITZ+ urged not to stigmatize them for it.
As an example, comedian Yevgeny Petrosyan can be cited, who, even while in Turkey, regularly checks with the current news report on Russian television. At the same time, recently the speaker of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, proposed dishonoring all citizens traveling abroad.
“I don’t think that these are deputies, but people, unfortunately, narrow-minded, have nothing to do with the country’s leadership,” Kuchera said.
According to him, the situation is absolutely unhealthy. The artist expressed the opinion that at such a pace the Russian Federation is becoming similar to Western legislators who call for the abolition of the issuance of visas to Russians.
