At the request of the Security Service, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy (ICIP) removed Russian singer Filip Kirkorov from the list of individuals who pose a threat to Ukraine’s national security.
This was reported by the press service of the ICIP .
“According to a new letter from the Security Service of Ukraine requesting to withdraw the previous letter on the inclusion of Filip Kirkorov from the previous list of persons threatening the national security of Ukraine, the ICRP excludes Kirkorov from this list,” the statement said.
The agency stressed that both the reasons for inclusion and the reasons for exclusion of persons from the list of the SBU in its letters to the Ministry does not specify.
As UNIAN previously reported, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine at the request of the SBU included the Russian singer Philip Kirkorov in the List of persons who pose a threat to national security.
The Security Service of Ukraine stated that such a decision was made because the artist supports the annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.
