The U.S. rock group Bloodhound Gang's planned performance at a festival in the Krasnodar territory has been canceled following an incident with a Russian flag in Odessa, Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky said on Twitter.

"Talked to Krasnodar territory leadership. Bloodhound Gang packing suitcases. These idiots won't perform in Kuban [Krasnodar territory]," Medinsky said.
