Director Nikita Mikhalkov said that it is necessary to revoke citizenship of those who call on other states to impose anti-Russian sanctions, reports Russia 24.
“I am absolutely convinced that it is possible to introduce, return an article on deprivation of citizenship,” he said.
At the same time, the filmmaker stressed that the use of the article should be strictly regulated in order to avoid abuse. He also added that deprivation of citizenship should not be the result of personal hostility.
Earlier, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian head had signed a decree conferring the title of Hero of Labor on Mikhalkov. The actor was awarded an award for special merits in the development of Russian culture and art, as well as for many years of fruitful work.
Nikita Mikhalkov was born on October 21, 1945 in Moscow. At the age of 14, he made his film debut, playing a schoolboy in Vasily Ordynsky’s film “Clouds over Borsk”, and four years later he got the main role in Georgy Danelia’s film “I walk around Moscow.”
