Hungarian President Katalin Nowak condemned attempts to deny the significance Russian culture. She shared this opinion in her Facebook social network account (a social network banned in Russia, owned by the extremist corporation Meta recognized in the Russian Federation).

The President wrote the corresponding post after visiting the ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky “The Nutcracker”, which was staged at the State Opera House of Hungary, in the city of Budapest.

Nowak said she continues to condemn the fighting going on Ukraine, but the condemnation cannot extend to people, art and culture. She also posed for pictures with artists from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan, who have been working in Hungary for a long time, from whom she took the oath of citizenship before the start of the performance.

According to Matviyenko, Western countries will not be able to oust Russia from the space of world culture. She stressed that attempts to abolish Russian culture should be assessed as “savagery and nonsense.”
