The police saw in the actions of journalist Ksenia Sobchak the spread of fakes about state power and sent materials against her to the Investigative Committee of Russia to initiate criminal proceedings. This was announced on Monday, October 3, by a representative of law enforcement agencies.

He said that we are talking about a fake “about state financing of festivals,” reports TASS.

Earlier, the police opened a criminal case of defamation against director Vitaly Mansky, who in an interview with Ksenia Sobchak on her YouTube channel said that allegedly at the Moscow International Film Festival “at least 85 percent of the budget is being stolen.” A TV presenter was questioned as a witness in this case.

On September 12, it was reported that one of the channels of the journalist Sobchak will be checked by the metropolitan police for propaganda of homosexuality. According to preliminary information, law enforcement officers became interested in the journalist’s activities after an unknown man made a statement about the harmful effect of content on the minds of minors.
