Shufutinsky warned about the ban on concerts in Ukraine after visiting Crimea

The concert of Mikhail Shufutinsky in Kiev was under threat because of his visit to Crimea visiting Crimea. This is reported by Ukrainskaya Pravda.

The Speaker of the State Border Service of Ukraine (State Border Guard Service) Andriy Demchenko said that “regarding this person in open sources there is enough information about his illegal visit to the territory temporarily occupied by Russia.” “If such people appear at the border, including using advanced information that they could have been illegally in Crimea, an additional check is carried out, as a result of which entry into Ukraine may be prohibited if the facts are confirmed,” Demchenko said./p>

Thus, the concert of Mikhail Shufutinsky in Kiev was under threat. The musician planned to perform at the Sports Palace on March 8, 2022. Currently, tickets for his performance cost from 590 to 6000 hryvnia (from 1650 to 16500 rubles). The singer himself has not yet commented on a possible ban on entering the country.

Crimea became part of Russia in March 2014 after a referendum in which the overwhelming majority of the region's residents who voted supported such a decision. Ukraine, the EU countries and the United States refused to recognize the results of the vote, calling the reunification of the peninsula with mainland Russia an annexation. The Russian authorities reject these charges and insist that the accession procedure was in accordance with international law.
