The Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation included the showman and artist Maxim Galkin in the register of natural persons-foreign agents. His name appeared in the list on the agency website.

< p>Ukraine is indicated as a foreign source of financing for Galkin. The reason for entering the Register is political activity.

Maxim Galkin initially opposed the Russian armed invasion of Ukraine. He repeatedly made retaliatory statements at concerts and on his social networks.

The 46-year-old artist gave several charity concerts in support of Ukrainian refugees. In March, Galkin left Russia with his wife Alla Pugacheva, but at the end of August the singer returned. Galkin did not return to Russia.

Pugacheva herself did not make statements about the Russian-Ukrainian war, but answered director Nikita Mikhalkov, who criticized her after her departure, with the words of the main character of his film "Slave of Love":

Mr. a. Gentlemen, you – animals. Gentlemen, you will be cursed by your country.

BAGNET reminds you that for anti-war policy and active assistance to Ukrainian refugees Maxim Galkin was excluded from the black list Ukrainian Ministry of Culture.
