  • Second arrest but questions linger over 'Maidan' exhibition
    cost of 650 000 If it is to meet that target it will have to go some So far the exhibition has not opened in a single US city though the Foundation s website says it should do so in Jacksonville Florida in November date and place to be confirmed It will also have to book airline tickets quickly to realize its plan of flying 100 Ukrainian dancers to the US to perform free of charge at a cost of 740 000 The exhibition has so far appeared at four locations in Kyiv including at the far right wing Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists and the Blockbuster entertainment center plus the grand sounding but little known World Peace Forum in Luxembourg three weeks in Vina del Mar Chile and now Riga Other revenue streams on the website offers countries to sign up to a different exhibition scheme called Windows of the World for a mere 150 000 with tiny Nepal apparently the only country to have taken the bait Yet another page offers a chance to win the most expensive photo in the world and there are plans to print a 1 000 run edition of the Maidan photos at 1 000 a copy along with other moneyspinners But more importantly from a Latvian perspective the Foundation also lists the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as one of its supporters that has shown commitment to support our fund and its mission The ministry s logo is proudly displayed on the website and on every panel of the exhibition itself LSM asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs if it was a supporter and was told The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia did not take part in organization of the exhibition either in terms of financial or logistical support Likewise the Ministry does not possess information about promotional materials produced for the purpose of the exhibition That is in contrast to Melnikoff himself who told LSM the Foreign Ministry had not only invited him to bring the exhibition to Riga but had indeed provided logistical and organizational support see audio file LSM asked if the ministry was happy to be associated with Melnikoff The ministry replied Being a state institution of a democratic country which protects artistic expression the Ministry categorically denounces any acts of vandalism against art exhibitions and expresses its support for freedom of speech The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia also strongly disassociates itself from any radical extremist and xenophobic views and underlines its support for freedom of expression in Latvia and beyond LSM also asked if the ministry had given permission for its logo to be used on the Foundation s website and was told The logo here should not be associated with the author but as it stands in the webpage with the exhibition currently shown in downtown Riga In short the Foreign Ministry does not necessarily support Melnikoff s views but it does support the exhibition by Melnikoff and the Soul of Ukraine Foundation he
