Russian citizens living in Ukraine will be obliged to sign a statement against Putin in order to not lose work.
The law stipulates that Russian citizens living in Ukraine and working in the field of culture, can, for example, perform on the stage of a theatre only after signing the Declaration “on condemnation of the occupation of the territory of Ukraine”.
Similar requirements will apply for Russian bands who are planning tours in Ukraine, or are granted permission for filming.
On the expected effects of the introduction of new measures, the authors of the draft law indicated the “strengthening of the authority of power” and the “promotion of Ukrainian artists”.
