Director and actor Nikita Mikhalkov made a loud statement.
The artist in his author’s program “Besogon” TV” spoke negatively about the stars who have gone abroad in recent months.
“Those who left now – no one expelled them. They are self-made. People who were in the top, at the top of popularity. Do they need the country? What can they give? How can they return to the country what it has done for them? No. I don’t think the country needs them.”, said Nikita Mikhalkov.
As Mikhalkov noted, those who fled are needed by that part of the elite that, with their hands, with their help, achieved their goals, their interests, which have nothing to do with the interests of the country.
Recall that some stars have left Russia in recent months. Among them are singer Alla Pugacheva, humorist Maxim Galkin, actress Chulpan Khamatova, musician Andrey Makarevich.
