Chekhov Moscow art theater spread the message of the artistic head of the Oleg Tabakov theatre, in which he rebuked correspondents in the incorrect use of his statement about Ukrainians.
"I did not wish to make any comments on the situation around trapped in the press of my remarks about Ukrainians. Explanations are inappropriate, as reported. But my private conversation on a mobile phone made a lot of noise. For this reason a few words in addition ", - reported in circulation Tabakov on the page theatre on Facebook.
"First. I was not warned about the fact that I interview. The transcript was not agreed with me. And I'm sorry that reporters today do not bother not to infringe elementary rules of ethics, " said the artistic Director of theater." Second. Currently the majority are speculating on relations with Ukraine, to cause another scandal. I have many friends in Ukraine, which I love And continue to maintain ties. And at the same time I have its firm stance on the issue And what is happening in our relations with the brotherly people of events, And in relation to the Russian And Ukrainian cultures, which I thought And still think a single entity. For me it was always obvious that the "nationalization" of any part of this unified Slavic culture And attempt to isolate the Ukrainian culture And literature from the Russian And wider – Slavic – stupid. I call this the Russian culture. Want, call it something else. But should not I, a man, as well as among them with Ukrainian roots, to speak about a particular way of Ukrainian culture. She was, there is And will be part of our common heritage. The other will be dissolved And perish, " believes TOBACCOS." I'm sorry if my out-of-context words (and They were precisely about That, And the conversation was exactly about this) unwittingly offended anyone. Let It remain on the conscience of those who use the situation to play off of people, build a strong dislike And make such provocations. However, I, like all normal citizens who wish the bloodshed ended, so we stopped, finally, to compile lists of enemies with 2 sides. Citizens of art does not have the ability to be dangerous To state security, neither in Ukraine nor in Russia, " he noted. Remember, first television channel REN TV has published a scandalous remark Tabakov about Ukrainians." They (referring to Ukrainians who support blacklist – approx. OPINION) AND so is not very enlightened. It's like grandma sometimes say, " never mind them, It's tamni TA nagamune Cudi ". The trouble is that normal citizens will suffer from what is normal information to them never gets… I pity them. They are in some sense miserable. Say seditious thought. At all times, their best times of their brightest Authorized intelligentsia were somewhere on the second And third positions after the Russians. I'm embarrassed for them ", — said TOBACCOS. VIDEO
