Press release from Latvian MFA

KOBZON was also denied a USA entry visa on multiple occasions because of his allegedly close ties with Russian organized crime.

KOBZON is announced to participate in a show scheduled on October 21st in London together with another politically engaged performer called Valeria, who also has been declared persona non grata in Latvia.

The UK government should not allow such person as KOBZON or Valeria on the UK soil
