The incident occurred after a demonstration in Washington of the film Director Andrei Nekrasov about the death of Sergei Magnitsky Magnitsky Act. Behind the scenes”. In the film we are talking about the fact that the accusations against the so-called “untouchables” — law enforcers and officials allegedly contributed to the death of a lawyer, was fabricated. While the Magnitsky Nekrasov suspects of complicity in the fraud of William Browder.
After the presentation, to which were invited representatives of the us Congress and the US state Department, Russian TV channels have expressed the desire to interview Yashin, also present in the room.
As he writes himself, reporters caught him by the sleeve, and the politician decided to give them a review, despite the fact that he considers these media propaganda.
In the interview, Yashin has listed a number of facts which, in his opinion, do not correspond to the claims in the film. In particular, we are talking about the fact that Magnitsky had allegedly been accused investigators Karpov and Kuznetsov in the theft, although in his testimony, says Yashin, their names are 27 times. Also in the film, according to policy, it is argued that Magnitsky before his death was beaten in prison, which is refuted by the data of the forensic examination.
In the end, Yashin promised that his point of view will give the scenes of the premiere of the film, but in the end the Federal TV channels were limited to the message that “opponents Nekrasov loudly, but to answer our questions on the merits.”
Yashin words are confirmed by the video of the interview to Federal TV channels, posted in his blog.
In addition, the journalist “the New newspaper” Alexander Garmazhapova present in this situation, said that the reporter tried to “soften” the opposition, saying that it works on your TV channel only out of necessity to feed the children and has nothing to do with propaganda. Thus later the air was released including footage shot with this, God forgive me, a journalist on the sly. For example, our conversation with Karina Orlova” (the last journalist known for his extremely critical towards the current situation in Russia’s position, often causing rejection in the environment of the opposition).
We add that the Director of Nekrasov, rather, not as a defender of the operating Russian authorities, and as their opponent. He emigrated from the USSR, in 2007 he directed the film. The Litvinenko case” (banned in Russia), and in 2010 signed the appeal “Putin must go”. Critical in relation to Russia has become the film “Russian Lessons” about the Russian-Georgian war of 2008.
The rejection of the opposition called it a film about Belarus “Together. Forever,” where critical was shown by the Belarusian opposition (they were played by hired actors), who was jailed after the election victory of Alexander Lukashenko.
Recall that the last time the figurant “the list Magnitsky” the ex-investigator Pavel Karpov has developed active judicial activity: he filed lawsuits against state Duma Deputy Dmitry Gudkov and politician Alexei Navalny, trying to prove that the accusations against him of involvement in the murder of lawyer are slander. While Russian Prosecutor General Yury Chaika has accused William Browder in anti-Russian activities and compromised the highest officials of the Russian Federation.
