She referred to Ukraine as the "changeable coin" and idolized Putin: why Lithuania decided to strip ballerina Ilze Liepa of citizenship

Ilze Liepa may be deprived of Lithuanian citizenship

The Lithuanian Ministry of Internal Affairs has requested the Department of Migration to initiate the procedure for revoking the Lithuanian citizenship of People's Artist of the Russian Federation, ballerina Ilze Liepa. According to Lithuanians, the Russian's public statements discredit the state.

This is stated in the official commentary of the Ministry, which was sent to BNS journalists. The Department of Migration has reportedly already asked the competent authorities to assess Ilze Liepa's statements about the war in Ukraine and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

If the ballerina's words are considered a threat to Lithuania's national security, the Department will prepare a proposal for the Ministry of the Interior, and later the case will be handed over to President Gitanas Nausėda, who will decide Liepa's fate.

As you know, in 2022, the Russian dual-citizen artist condemned the Baltic states for their pro-Ukrainian policies and supported the war unleashed by Russian dictator President Vladimir Putin.

In an interview she gave to propagandists, she called Ukraine a "bargaining chip" in some kind of global conflict between the West and Russia.

"I have no doubt about what our president is talking about, and although it is from the other side that they say that we are deceived and that the Kremlin has brainwashed us, this is everyone's business and everyone's choice," the Putinist said.

The artist saw "deep values of Russia" in the war and condemned the country that granted her citizenship for helping Ukraine and seeking to get rid of the Soviet legacy.

According to the law on Lithuanian citizenship, a person may be deprived of citizenship if he or she threatens the security interests of Lithuania by his or her actions, publicly expresses support for a state that threatens the security interests of Lithuania or another member state of the European Union and their allies.
