Petition from the Ukrainian Institute to impose cultural sanctions on Russia


We, Ukrainian artists and cultural activists, highly value the stance taken by some Russian cultural influencers who have openly condemned the Russian aggression and military action against Ukraine. Art has always remained at the forefront of humanitarian values. We strongly believe that culture cannot be subservient to political propaganda, instead it should be utilised for developing critical thinking and promoting dialogue. We call for sanctions that would limit Russia’s presence within the international cultural arena.
