As has been said by well known Russian producer Joseph Prigogine, the Ukrainian authorities made him an offer which he refused. According to the husband of the singer Valeria, and one of the powers that be in Ukraine’s capital Kiev has asked him to contribute to making his name and the name of his wife from the “black list”. For this service they are required not more nor less – a million dollars. Such loud statement that Joseph did in the program “Press conference with Stas Natansona”.
“For them it is business. Asked for a million dollars. If we had paid for, not under what sanctions we wouldn’t be,” said Joseph.
Also Prigozhin told about the problems with the British authorities, who on the eve of the speech, Valerie began receiving messages from certain activists anonymous. They recently claimed that Valeria and her husband are planning to hold an unauthorized rally during his speech. According to Joseph, some of the doubters in their integrity and in fact came to the concert Valerie to check and was surprised that her husband not plotting any conspiracy.
“Was wondering when you’d start the rally, and was very surprised when nothing happened” — says Prigogine.
Recall that in Ukraine for several years is the so-called “black list”, which included dozens of Russian celebrities, for example, Irina Allegrova, Oleg Gazmanov, Mikhail Boyarsky, Ivan Okhlobystin, Mikhail Porechenkov, Dmitry Pevtsov and many others. It is noteworthy that included in this list and those who have Ukrainian roots. So, the singer lolita was not allowed to Kiev to visit his mother and sick daughter, but Natasha Koroleva made an exception, dropping to the day his beloved grandmother to rest. The reason for this attitude to celebrities – public support for the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula and its vicinity, that no notice of the Ukrainian authorities is illegal.
