Andriy Yermak, Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, spoke by video conference with renowned American film actor, director and producer Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal, co-founders of the Tribeca Film Festival, which emerged in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Andriy Yermak thanked the Hollywood legend for his support of Ukraine and his position on the terrible war against our state by the Russian Federation.
“When people like you support us, it inspires, gives energy and strength,” he said.
The Head of the Office of the Head of State stressed that today Ukraine is fighting not only for itself and its freedom but also to protect the entire free democratic world.
Jane Rosenthal noted that it is very difficult to observe what is happening in Ukraine.
“We are trying to do everything possible to help Ukrainians,” she said.
In particular, the producer proposed to show the video address of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, to the participants and guests of this year’s festival “Tribeca”, which will take place on June 8-19. Andriy Yermak supported this idea.
The head of the Office of the Head of State also invited Robert de Niro and Jane Rosenthal to consider joining support for the United24 project initiated by President Volodymyr Zelensky, which should unite people from all over the world to help Ukraine.
Andriy Yermak invited Robert de Niro to visit Ukraine at this crucial time when the opportunity arises. The actor said he was looking forward to the opportunity.
