Previously, the Cannes Film Festival had publicly condemned Russia’s war on Ukraine and said it would reject all official Russian representatives or anyone associated with the Russian government from participating in this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

But Cannes did not impose a blanket ban on Russians. It is reported that the Cannes Film Festival has only approved a small number of Russian media that align with the festival’s anti-war stance.
