The Deputy of the State Duma Natalia Poklonskaya confirmed that it had asked the Prosecutor’s office of Simferopol to restrict in local cinemas traders of the movie “Matilda”. Earlier the lawyer of the film’s Director, Alexey Uchitel, Konstantin Dobrynin said that thus Russia had violated the law on the status of the Deputy.
As written Poklonskaya at “Vkontakte”, it is “the Crimean Prosecutor’s office sent check materials on the fact of insult of religious feelings of believers film Matilda”.
She also confirmed information about the fact that the outcome of this appeal, the Prosecutor’s office warned the cinemas on the inadmissibility of violating the law on extremism by showing trailers allegedly insulting the feelings of believers. Earlier, Dobrynin said that such letters could be fake.
“Prior to the adoption by the Ministry of culture, continues Poklonskaya — mirrored solution in which people see the attitude on the part of the relevant Ministry, to grant or refuse to grant a distribution certificate for the film, insulting the religious feelings of people and desecrating Orthodox Shrines, in accordance with the conclusions of experts (including doctors of Sciences) and the opinion of the clergy of the Orthodox Church, showing in theaters of the trailers is unacceptable!”
Recall that Dobrynin in connection with these actions Polonskaya appealed to the Russian Prosecutor General Yury Chaika: he reminded that the Prosecutor General’s office has twice in 2016 and 2017 did not find violations in the trailers of “Matilda” complained Taylor. In this regard, said Dobrynin, the Prosecutor’s office in Simferopol went contrary to the decision of the Prosecutor General, which could be due to corruption considerations.
In addition, the lawyer explained, the intervention Polonskaya in the activities of the Simferopol Prosecutor’s office could be construed as a violation of the law because the Deputy knew about made by the Prosecutor General’s failures in connection with its appeal.
In the end, Dobrynin asked for a Cup of Tea to take to address the Poklonsky warning about the inadmissibility of violation of laws.
