Descriptions

He has been vocal in spreading Kremlin propaganda narratives on Ukraine since 2014. He has expressed support for the annexation of Crimea and the recognition of the independence of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk Republics. He is the Chairman of the Russian Foundation of Culture, a public organisation which was established by a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation in 2016. He has justified Russia’s war of aggression, in order to protect Donbass from alleged crimes of Ukraine that took place against the civil population. He has blamed Ukrainians for so-called Russophobia, saying the ‘conflict’ between the two countries was inevitable. He has called the Ukrainian language a ‘catastrophe’ for Russia, because it allegedly formulates hatred against the country and spreads Russophobia. Mikhalkov called for the complete exclusion of teaching in Ukrainian in schools in Donbass. He has supported the Kremlin’s false narrative concerning biological weapons in Ukraine and heroicised Russian prisoners fighting in Ukraine. In 2022 he received the title of Hero of Labor in a ceremony in the Kremlin, and made a speech in support of the war of aggression against Ukraine.

Il est le président de la Fondation russe de la culture, un organisme public établi par décret du président de la Fédération de Russie en 2016.
