Poklonskaya was asked to withdraw from “Matilda” rental license because of the “negative reaction in society”
The Deputy of the state Duma Natalia Poklonskaya, who led the campaign against the film by Alexei Uchitel “Matilda” about Nicholas II, called for a return to the consideration of the results of the pattern distribution certificate.
“On the basis that the rental license was issued too quickly during the day, perhaps that is why the Public Council is not able to see this film. I think that this question is not irrevocable. You can return to it. There is a procedure of revoking the license,” – said the parliamentarian (quoted by “Interfax”).
According to Poklonski, among other things, the decision to issue the film a distribution certificate requires a revision to the “negative reaction in society”, which has followed on this picture.
“What we are seeing today is the manifestation of some radical statements, extremism, crime, delinquency. Of course, this constitutes grounds to reconsider the decision”, – said the Deputy of the state Duma.
Poklonskaya also drew attention to the fact that when issuing a distribution certificate by the Ministry of culture did not ask the opinion of the Public Council, “because the film did not show the Public the Council.”
“So first of all it is necessary to return to the order and regulations of issuing a distribution certificate and show it before the movie only to those people, those professionals who pass its judgment, which speak of the desirability or otherwise of the screening of the film”, – concluded the Organizers.
Meanwhile, the Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky sent a letter to the interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev with a request to ensure security and prevent possible illegal actions on the screening of the film “Matilda”.
Informed Medina asked law enforcement agencies to stop the pressure from the opponents of “Matilda”, noting that they set a dangerous precedent. “Please give a principled and fair evaluation of their actions,” addressed to militiamen Medina.
The movie “Matilda” will be released on October 26. In early August, the Ministry of culture gave the tape about the novel of the future Emperor Nicholas II and the ballerina Matilda Kschessinska, rental license, despite calls Poklonskaya and her companions not to do so.
