- Before its temporary closure, the theater was forced to postpone performances with the participation of actor Danyla Kozlovsky. Earlier, activist Vitaly Borodyn, known for his denunciations, complained about Kozlovsky to the Prosecutor General’s Office. He asked the agency to check the actor for discrediting the Russian army.
- In response, Kozlovsky filed a lawsuit against Borodin for the protection of honor and dignity. He called ego mourning “fantasy”. The court did not accept the actor’s claim because of the defendant’s incomplete data.
- After the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Russian authorities began to persecute cultural figures because of their opposition to the war. Many artists were left with positions and platforms for performances, some had to go abroad.
