MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Veteran Russian rock singer Andrey Makarevich has been robbed on a train travelling from the west Ukrainian city of Lviv to Mogilev in Belarus, he said on Facebook on Friday.
"We gave three concerts in Lviv, a wonderful city with beautiful architecture. We received the warmest welcome," Makarevich said. "If the money had not been stolen from my bag on a train from Lviv to Mogilev, impressions would have been the best."
Makarevich has been put on the so-called "white list" of 34 Russian culture figures whom the Ukrainian government wants to be given "maximum support." In August, Ukrainian authorities also released a "black list" of 16 celebrities banned from entering the country.
French and Hollywood movie stars Gerard Depardieu and Steven Seagal, Russian Oscar-winning filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov, and some Russian pop singers are on the list.
