The Ukrainian government announces the abduction in the occupied city of Kherson of the director of the regional theater and director Oleksandr Kniga by the Russian army. Putin is implementing his unfortunately usual policy of terror and intimidation of the populations in the occupied territories, especially those who can speak out against the occupation.
With the entire profession, the CGT Theater, Movie, Audiovisual, and Cultural Workers Union demands the immediate release of the director and all the detainees, and asks the Minister of Culture and the Quai d’Orsay to do everything possible to do so.
We continue our calls to demonstrate against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, for peace.
