Britain’s National Gallery Changes Name of 19th Century Painting Due to “Current Situation”

‘Russian Dancers’ is now ‘Ukrainian Dancers’.

The British National Gallery has changed the name of a 19th century painting by French impressionist Edgar Degas from ‘Russian Dancers’ to ‘Ukrainian Dancers’ due to the “current situation.”

Yes, really.

The original name of the painting was cancelled after Ukrainian artist and activist Mariam Naiem wrote letters to numerous western art museums that carried works from the series.

Naiem described her success in forcing the gallery to fold as a “micro victory.”

In a statement, the gallery admitted that the name change came as a result of the public pressure campaign and had nothing to do with any new information discovered about Degas’ work.

“The title of this painting has been an ongoing point of discussion for many years and is covered in scholarly literature,” a spokesperson told the Guardian.

“However there has been increased focus on it over the past month due to the current situation so therefore we felt it was an appropriate moment to update the painting’s title to better reflect the subject of the painting.”

A description on the gallery’s official website says the dancers featured in the 1890s pastel and charcoal image “are almost certainly Ukrainian rather than Russian,” without offering any further explanation.

The rename is yet another example of how Russian cultural history that has absolutely nothing to do with the “current thing” is now being erased as part of a wave of Russophobia.

The University of Milano-Bicocca attempted to cancel a teaching course about the 19th century writer Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Russian prodigy pianist Alexander Malofee was also dropped from performing for the Montreal Symphony Orchestra after complaints by Ukrainians, while chief conductor of the Munich Philharmonic Valery Gergiev faced similar cancellation after failing to pass an ideological purity test.

Swiss Captain Rejects World Cup Virtue Signaling

Says team is not in Qatar to “hand out lessons to anyone.”

Swiss football captain Granit Xhaka has rejected the deluge of virtue signaling taking place at the World Cup, asserting his team isn’t in Qatar to “hand out lessons to anyone.”

Since it began, the tournament has been beset by controversy over teams attempting to express their support for the LGBT movement in a country that still imprisons homosexuals.

FIFA has banned players from wearing ‘OneLove’ armbands, something the German team protested this week by placing their hands over their mouths during a pre-game photo.

Supporters attending games have also been told they can’t wear rainbow hats or carry LGBT flags into stadiums, although this policy has now been reversed.

Despite many teams jumping on the virtue signaling bandwagon (England have once again begun to ‘take a knee’), Switzerland captain Granit Xhaka says he isn’t interested.

“I don’t think we need to do anything as the Swiss team,” said Xhaka. “We need to respect the rules and concentrate on our football, that’s all I intend to do. We’re here to play football and not hand out lessons to anyone.”

Meanwhile, Wales national coach Rob Page chided Germany, who lost 2-1 to Japan after their hands over mouths PR stunt, suggesting it made them lose focus on the match itself.

“I want my players to focus fully on playing games of football and winning games. I am sure Germany now, in hindsight, will probably have the same message,” said Page.

As we discuss in the video below, while you can be arrested for promoting LGBT in Qatar, in the west, you can be arrested for disrespecting LGBT.

We’re so much better!
