But it’s important “not to go to the other extreme, which we’ve seen with Black Lives Matter and the assaults on white people, white citizens of the United States,” he added.
The Russian Foreign Minister linked this situation to the “cultural revolution underway in the United States”, saying that “Hollywood is changing its rules so that everything reflects the diversity of modern society, which is also a form of censorship “.
“I have seen black people perform in Shakespeare plays. Only, I don’t know when we’ll see a white Othello, ”he continued. “This politically correct pushed to the point of absurdity will end badly”.
