The rationale for this decision was that I allegedly received funds from Ukraine, for which I carried out political activities. Firstly, I am not engaged in political activity, I am engaged in a humorous genre, political satire. I’ve been doing this for 28 years. I started it under Boris Nikolaevich Yeltsin, which I continue to do. If I appeal to subscribers outside the genre, then I do it sincerely, it is not paid for by decent people. I do not sell my thoughts, opinion.

I don’t trade conscience. As for Ukraine, once, 10 years ago, I received money there when I gave concerts. But now I don’t get it. Reason is contrived. Why this happens, I don’t know. I used to joke about politicians, and I will continue. This is my right to work and my freedom of speech”, — said 46-year-old Galkin in his address on the social network.
