Vyatrovich allowed Tsoi and Vysotsky to sing in Ukraine

The law banning Russian music in Ukraine does not apply to Viktor Tsoi and Vladimir Vysotsky. One of the authors of the bill, People's Deputy Volodymyr Vyatrovich, said this in a commentary to KP in Ukraine.

– The law says that it is forbidden to broadcast in any form performers who were citizens of the aggressor country after 1991. Admirers of the work of Vladimir Vysotsky or Viktor Tsoi can be calm – both died before Ukraine declared independence, therefore they are not prohibited. This was confirmed to us by Vladimir Vyatrovich, – the material says.

At the same time, Bulat Okudzhava and Muslim Magomayev are banned. Okudzhava, who publicly condemned the war in Chechnya, died in 1997. Magomayev accepted Russian citizenship in 2005. But Willy Tokarev, who dedicated his last song to Ramzan Kadyrov, is formally allowed. He received American citizenship even before 1991.

On June 19, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law banning Russian musical production in public space. It involves the creation of a white list of Russian artists. Only those included in the list will be able to continue to tour in Ukraine, and their music will be played on radio and music channels.
