PRESS RELEASE : Andriy Yermak talked online with American actor Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal

The press release issued by the President of Ukraine on 18 May 2022.

Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak 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 waged against our state by the Russian Federation.

“When we are supported by people like you, it inspires, gives energy and strength,” he said.

The Head of the Office of the President stressed that today Ukraine is fighting not only for itself and its freedom, but also for 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 offered to show the video address of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the participants and guests of this year’s Tribeca festival, which will take place on June 8-19. Andriy Yermak supported this idea.

The Head of the Office of the President also invited Robert de Niro and Jane Rosenthal to consider joining support for the United24 project initiated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, 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 that opportunity.
