People's Artist of Russia Oleg Menshikov left the post of director of the Moscow Drama Theater named after M.N. Ermolova, however, the actor will continue to cooperate with the theater as its artistic director.

"Oleg Evgenievich resigned in June this year, but he remained the artistic director of the theater", - the press service of the institution commented.

Sergei Kuzoyatov became the new director of the theater, writes TASS.

We will remind, a loud scandal erupted in July this year due to the reduction of the theater staff. 22 artists were fired. The management explained their dismissal by the complexity of the financial situation in the theater associated with the coronavirus pandemic. The disgruntled artists then even turned to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to check the legality of their dismissal. The artists believe that the artistic director dismissed those who disliked them under the pretext of optimization. The artists intend to seek the removal from the post of the artistic director of the theater.
