KIEV, July 30. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Culture Ministry has put Hollywood actors Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Clooney and Jared Leto on a "whitelist" of people loyal to the Kiev government, the ministry’s press service said on Thursday.

Thirty-four celebrities get the thumbs-up, among them Russian rock stars Andrey Makarevich, Yuri Shevchuk and Zemfira, actors Liya Akhedzhakova, Oleg Yefremov and Oleg Basilashvili, writer Boris Akunin and filmmaker Eldar Ryazanov.

"I think that the whitelisted figures should get maximum assistance for their activities in Ukraine if necessary," Culture Minister Vyacheslav Kirilenko said.

The "whitelist" follows a ministry blacklist of 566 actors, musicians and other culture figures allegedly posing threats to Ukraine’s national security, forwarded to the Ukrainian Security Service and the Council of National Defence and Security.

Ukraine has also banned entry to French and American movie stars Gerard Depardieu, a Russian passport-holder, and Stephen Segal, who has good relations with President Vladimir Putin. Balkan musician and composer Goran Bregovic was also banned from entry following his visit to Crimea in April.
