"It is better to move than to be not enough" - Tkachenko about Ukrainians who lived in the Russian Federation before the invasion

According to the Minister of Culture, some Ukrainian artists continue to reside in the aggressor country and perform at concerts in support of war, so it is better to decide on a position later than never. The Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko spoke about artists who decided on their position only after February 24, 2022, and commented on the requirements of people who want his resignation. About it reports the publication "Public" on June 29.

The politician met with activists, who was announced after the rally demanding his resignation at the Book Arsenal in Kiev. It discussed many issues, including claims that he continues to hold a position in the Ministry of Culture. "As for specific questions or claims: I am ready to answer them. But if someone does not like my face and am Sorry," the message reads.

They also talked about artists who continued to work and make money in the Russian Federation after 2014, although the war was already in the Donbass and the Crimea was occupied. Oleksandr Tkachenko is convinced that they will be better determined by a position later than at all. "It is better to move than to be careful, what happened to many Ukrainian artists who still remain in Russia and perform at concerts in support of the war," the minister said.

But in the scandal with Svetlana Loboda, who occurred in Kharkiv the day before, he is on the side of a 16-year-old girl who stood with the poster "Kharkiv without Loboda". We will remind, on June 19 it was reported that the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmigal responded to the call to remove from the post of Alexander Tkachenko. According to him, it is impossible to establish the facts and circumstances of the accusations specified in the petition.
