Ukraine, Russian director Sokurov blocked at the border with Finland

-

Russian director Aleksandr Sokurov was blocked at the border with Finland that he would have had to pass to go to Helsinki and take a plane to Milan, the Insider journalist said, and before Radio Eco in Moscow, Ksenia Larina in a post on Facebook. The director, who is also part of the Kremlin’s Center for Human Rights, was expected at the “Rights and Duties” conference, included in the Milanesiana program, where he spoke today via Zoom. In the four and a half hours he was stranded at the border on Monday, he saw cars and cars, full buses, hundreds of people who, unlike him, managed to leave Russia undisturbed, he later testified. At the border between Russia and Finland he was asked to get out of the car. His passport was taken and the guards disappeared for a long time without giving any explanation. Even on his ‘return’ to Russia, Sokurov, who is 71 years old, and who intended to leave his country only for a short time, to take part in the conference in Milan, had to wait an hour and a half before the green light to continue. . The author of films such as “Russian Ark” and “Faust” – Golden Lion in Venice in 2011 – then returned to St. Petersburg. Last December, in a meeting of the Human Rights Council with the Russian President, the artist, who after the start of the invasion of Ukraine mentioned the forbidden term of war in a couple of interviews without going further, had denounced Moscow’s “problematic foreign policy”, underlining that the country was facing a constitutional crisis, which Russia would have to give up on some regions. Vladimir Putin defined the intervention of Sokurov, awarded the highest honors of the Russian state, a “Manifesto” and accused the director, who in 2016 asked him to reconsider the conviction of Ukrainian director Oleh Sentsov for terrorism, of wanting to reduce the country to Muscovy only and of wanting to do “like NATO”. The artist denounced in particular the concentration of non-Russian ethnic groups in the Caucasus and the decline of ethnic diversity that threatens “the basic republican foundations”, as well as the “politicization” of life in Russia. “We need a strong and active opposition across the political spectrum” and “Russia must not go to war, except to defend itself”, he then stressed.
