The next release of the program “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on the channel “Russia 1” turned into a scandal. One of the guests in the Studio Gregory Vinnikov, who on Russian TV is often presented as a “journalist from the USA Greg Weiner”, released inappropriate comment after the words of the dead in Syria, the Russian su-25 pilot the Roman Filipov. Gunmen attack plane shot down on 3 February, the airline ejected and on the ground after the unequal battle blew himself up with a grenade, not wanting to surrender.
When the Chairman of the Duma Committee on education Vyacheslav Nikonov said that Filipovo deservedly awarded the title of Hero of Russia and is the person you can be, Vinnikov interrupted him. “He left the hut, went to war, to land in Damascus the Syrians to give” – he put his sarcastic remark.
Present in the Studio, including the Vladimir Solovyov, was outraged by these words. “You know, he [Filipov] is not sausage, he fled to America, to returning former homeland shit watered!”emotionally reacted broadcaster, making explicit reference to the biography of the guest.
Vinnikov, as you know, in 1980-ies emigrated from the USSR to the USA, where he first engaged in tourism business, and then another, and legal services. In 2012, the immigrant already having a debt in the United States, returned to Russia. I wrote “Medusa” on the American continent there are people who believe Weiner-Vinnikov a fraud. The entrepreneur in April 2017 recognized that while debts can not, but stressed that the court claims it has no one.
“You about the hero, at least not mockers!”Vinnikova asked after his remarks about the dead pilot. Nikonov pointed to the inappropriateness of the phrase in the day when they buried Filipova and suggested Solovyov as the presenter of the program to remove the blasphemer from the Studio.
Vinnikov stood up for the Ukrainian scientist Vyacheslav Kovtun – allegedly, the man expressed his opinion, and in General, there is freedom of speech. “We have no freedom of blasphemy in the country!”- Nikonov parried.
“Go knock,” said about what is happening culprit of the scandal, but asking the presenter to leave the Studio did not argue.
