Very Disappointing Statement from Anna Netrebko

Ms. Netrebko is not my favorite soprano but she is an important figure on the world stage.

Netrebko made the following statement on her Facebook page:
As an artist, it is my great joy to collaborate with all of my wonderful colleagues—regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. I have never and will never discriminate against anyone.
That is not the point. Ms. Netrebko is a Russian and she is an artist who performs internationally. Either she supports the new anti-gay laws in the Russian Federation or she does not.

Which is it?
