Serbian filmmaker and musician Emir Kusturica has commented on the decision of the Ukrainian authorities to ban his speech in Kiev at the event dedicated to the Millennium anniversary of the death of Prince Vladimir.

According to the director, the upcoming event is “an important date in the history of Russia, which is contrary to their expectation and perception of today’s world, different from what was accepted by Holy Vladimir.

“They perceive the world as anti-Christian and anti-civilizational. They use the most terrible means to obtain power. It seems to me that they will leave in the same way they came – the most terrible manner,” said Kusturica, speaking about the Ukrainian authorities.

The director believes that the change of power in Ukraine was the result of “a certain plot that brought murderers to Maidan, killing activists and even the police”.

“They came to power via a military coup, they had an agreement to turn the peaceful regulation of the Ukrainian crisis into war,” said Kusturica.
