This is stated in the message of the Ministry of Culture.

“Those cultural figures who left the country in this difficult time, abandoned Russia, who publicly opposed its rich culture, are absolutely logically leaving our institutions and their posters one after another,” TASS quoted the statement.

The ministry also said that a large number of appeals with indignation are received from Russian citizens due to the presence of such cultural figures in information and advertising materials of state institutions.

According to the agency, "this request comes, first of all, from society."

The Ministry of Culture added that it cannot and should not ignore such a request.

Earlier, the speaker of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, called the departure of some Russians from the country a betrayal.
