Are there any political persecutions in the sphere of culture and art?

The minister of culture of Ukraine Oxana Bilozir, speaking in the parliament, declared that Victor Prihodko has been dismissed from the post of the director of the film studio in the name of Dovzhenko.

Bilozir also named Mikhail Resnikovich, who was dismissed from the post of the general director and artistic chief of National academic theatre of Russian drama in the name of Lesya Ukrainka. The minister pointed out that a criminal action was brought against Resnikovich, but she did not specify what he was accused of.

More than 50 actors of the theatre appealed to the president of Ukraine with an open letter and asked to investigate the situation round the theatre.
They expressed a worry about the further fate of the staff in connection with examination started by General Office of Public Prosecutor exactly after elections, during which Resnikovich supported Victor Yanukovich.
