In an interview to the Latvian radio 4, said one of the authors of the appeal to the minister, businessman Yuri Kruminsh.Ssylayas own sources, Krumins said that in addition to leaving the “New Wave”, the Russian side is also discussing the closure of a number of annual events held in Jurmala.

“We are talking about closing not only the” new wave “, but KVN festival Comedy club and other activities.
