In Odesa, a large-scale rally is held under the walls of Odesa State Administration in support of the director of the Odesa Fine Arts Museum, Oleksandr Roitburd.
More than a thousand people gathered in the square in front of the building. They demand that he return to Roitburd’s post and not pursue him because of his political position.
The rally also includes politicians, representatives of the clergy and culture, including Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy, pianist Oleksiy Botvinov, sculptor Mykhaylo Reva and others.
Opposition Bloc deputies sought his dismissal this week – 53 voters voted in favor of early termination of the contract.
It should be noted that the deputies did not hear the report of the director of the museum on the work of the institution.
The main motive was “Roitburd’s neglect of MPs”.
The artist himself is going to defend his position in court.
