Andriy Khalpakhchi: LGBT program "Sunny Bunny" is important and we will not give it

Opening of the "Sunny Bunny" in cinema "Kyiv" has passed peacefully and without provocation. The program was opened by Mr. Khalpakhchi. He stressed that the program is relevant and important part of the Film Festival "Youth" and it needs support in these difficult times.

 
"The program was organized in the late nineteenth century as a child" Teddy Bears ". Then we thought that we are courageous and willing to create a program in a new, independent Ukraine. I remember the story of previous years, when one journalist asked the then President of Ukraine - Viktor Yushchenko and President of "Youth" as he is the President of Ukraine, may allow the display of LGBT cinema at international festivals. He answered this rhetorical question: Do you nvvazhayete that gays and lesbians are not citizens of Ukraine ", - said Andrey Khalpakhchi before showing of the film.
 
He said banning all propaganda in Russia and obscurantist called it: "As you remember obscurantist Russian when Russia bans" propaganda of homosexuality ". Our Parliament began to debate whether we adopt such a law and then we decided that such a program is an important and urgent. If you see this year's program, you will see that it shows films that have won many international awards. This movie, which tells about the important topic of tolerance and diversity. I believe that today more people will come to this program " - finished opening remarks Andrew Halpachi.
