Spanish Journalist c?sar Vidal, enabled by the Ukrainian authorities in the sanctions list, said that he had not thought that will be "within the cast" with Gerard Depardieu and Steven Seagal.
"I never thought that I would get the cast together with Steven Seagal and even less with Gerard Depardieu. Unusually. However, the nationalist, the owner of the chocolate factory, which rules in Ukraine, decided to include us 3 in the list of bandits against their faux nation, " opined c?sar Vidal on his page in Facebook.
The journalist emphasized that from the very beginning in the "black list" he was together with 2 media workers who went missing in July in the Syrian Arab Republic.
"mentioned in the" black list ", in which about 400 people from around the world, a large number of artists, intellectuals or journalists. Plus, there is one of my favorite Directors - brilliant Nikita Mikhalkov, the Oscar winner for outstanding " Burnt by the sun ". Honestly, that has the ability to be higher than to be in the same cast member that Depardieu and Segal, due to the form of the filmmaker Mikhalkov?", - written by a writer.
Ukraine on Wednesday launched a year of punishment relative to 388 individuals and 105 legal entities, among them citizens of 23 countries, and among them a number of Russian and Western journalists. On Thursday, the Ukrainian side has made adjustments to the list, excluding a number of correspondents, among them 2 of the Spaniards Manuel ?ngel Sastre (El Pais, El Confidencial, Quatro) and Antonio Pampliega (El Pais, El Confidencial, Quatro). Both journalists in mid-July were missing in the Syrian Arab Republic. It is planned that they were captured by militants of the " Islamic country ".
However the list remains c?sar Vidal (La Razon) and 7 Spanish Residents. Justifying his decision to leave in the list of c?sar Vidal, Ukrainian authorities said that " the Spanish citizen c?sar Vidal has acted as an observer at the illegal referendum and made statements about the artificial nature of Ukraine as a country. For example, he argued: "This artificial nation called Ukraine, used as a weapon to threaten the Kremlin." Vidal denied entry to the site of Ukraine.
