The national Council for this reason stated that they have this issue no leverage, because the Ukrainian legislation does not contain such prohibitions. Therefore, the national Council, referring to world practice, proposes to establish in law such a limitation.

“Legislators could consider and apply international practices in relation to influence on local artists that are touring in a country recognized as the aggressor. These can be fines or criminal liability for them. A broadcaster would be required to limit the participation of such artists or cultural workers to live, perhaps for a certain period. In this case, the national regulator will receive real levers of influence upon broadcasters,” – said in a statement
