Writer Linor Goralik removed from the schedule of Estonian literature festival after Ukrainian women protest 14:55

Writer Linor Goralik was expelled from the international literary Prima Vista program over the protest of Ukrainian poets Anna Gruver and Olena Huseynova. This was reported by the Estonian media.

It was announced on May 8, the opening day of the festival, that Linor Goralik would not perform at the festival. The head of the festival, Krista Aru, explained the exclusion of the writer by the fact that “tensions between foreign guests should be reduced.”

Poet Olena Huseynova opposes Goralik’s speech, saying that “it is not possible to discuss the problems of Russian culture at the moment”. In addition, Huseynova believes that the author’s online publication “ROAR – Newsletter of Oppositional Russian-Speaking Culture” protects Russian speakers.

“His appearance changed with the inclinations of the so-called liberal intellectuals who left Russia. They did not go to the front to fight on the Ukrainian side. They did not stay to fight their regime. “They don’t want defeat for their country,” he said.

Writer Linor Goralik was born in Ukraine and then moved with his family to Israel, where he graduated from university. Between 2000 and 2014 he lived in Moscow but returned to Israel. In 2022, Goralik created the ROAR online publication, whose main task is to familiarize readers with modern Russian-speaking culture. In the same year, the site was blocked by Roskomnadzor. The author is an Israeli citizen.
