On July 8, several media reported that Ukraine’s Culture Ministry made a list of Russian entertainers allegedly threatening the country’s national security. Ukrainian deputy culture minister Yury Zubko said that the list included 117 people. "Ukraine’s State Security Service is investigating and will submit appropriate materials to the court, whose final decision is required to include a person in the list," Zubko noted adding that "the list will be published on the official website by August 3."
