The Minister of culture Vladimir Medina believes that the sanctions will not affect cultural exchanges between Russia and other countries.

«Relations between the cultural institutions – museums, theatres, libraries, ministries of culture is traditionally very dense, and in recent years we only expand our cultural presence abroad. This suggests that the policy of sanctions in the cultural sphere has no prospects. Especially in relation to Russia», — said Medina in the broadcast transmission «actors with Naila Asker-zade».

He stressed that culture is traditionally the sphere, which «transcends any political differences.»
