Bikovic has labored in Russia for a decade, bought an honour from Vladimir Putin in 2018, and can turn into a Russian citizen in 2021. In a press release of his personal, Bikovic mentioned, “I was honoured to be chosen to be a part of White Lotus, a TV series that I hold in high regard and with colleagues whom I deeply respect. However, my participation is not possible due to reasons beyond the realm of art and I will not bow to any narrative that seeks to compromise my integrity. I would like to thank everyone who stood by me. I wish my colleagues great success in creating the next season.”
