The Russian Drama Theatre of Lithuania cancelled plans to participate in a festival in St Petersburg after the event organizer publicly supported Russia’s actions in Crimea. 

The group withdrew from April’s “Meetings in Russia” event after festival organizer Sergey Shub signed a statement supporting Russia’s actions in the Ukrainian region of Crimea.

“It is obvious to the whole civilized world that the Russian cultural leaders who signed this statement support the annexation of a part of another country,” said Jonas Vaitkus, director of the Russian Drama Theatre of Lithuania, in a letter.

The management of the Russian Drama Theatre of Lithuania underscored that Russian culture would no be less respected in the light of ongoing political events but that “any attempt to manipulate the cultural and artistic community is unacceptable.”

The Russian Drama Theatre of Lithuania had been scheduled to perform “Eugene Onegin” at the international festival.
