When I was asked: "Laima, if to invite you, you will go to the Crimea" — I have told: "We have enough" — the singer on air of the Central Television program on NTV has said. Vaikule has noted that similar development of the situation "angers" her. "Everything that I have told: "No, our law forbids". And it is the truth" — the performer has emphasized. The singer has explained that she doesn't test a negative to residents of the Crimea, but will be able to act only after cancellation of the ban of the Latvian authorities on concerts of actors on the peninsula there. "I love the public. Unless it is possible to be against someone? It isn't necessary to entangle me in policy. I want to sing for the favourite public" — Vaikule has concluded. Earlier at a press conference before a concert in Odessa Vaikule was asked whether she is going to the Crimea. The actress has answered it that she won't go to the peninsula for any fees because it is forbidden to Europeans. She has also added that she has no warm feelings to the USSR and is happy that it has broken up. The statement of the singer has caused acute reaction of the public, including criticism from colleagues. Later Vaikule has added that she is ready to visit the peninsula, but only after removal from Russia of the sanctions imposed after return of the Crimea. The singer has noted that in that case she is ready to act even free of charge. © RIA Novosti / Alexander Natruskin Zapashny has responded to Vaikule's statement for the Crimea and Sssraleksandr Haminsky, the representative of Public council to the capital Department of MIA, has sent inquiry to the head of the ministry Vladimir Kolokoltsev with a request to check concert activity of Vaikule in the territory of Russia. The singer's director Alexey Yakovlev at the same time has told RIA Novosti that Vaikule has the residence permit in Russia, the work permit and that she pays taxes therefore no checks disturb her. The deputy of the State Duma from the Crimea Ruslan Balbek has said that Vaikule's refusal to perform with concerts on the peninsula will be apprehended without chagrin, however in any "black lists" nobody is going to bring her.
