the Business of Studio seven, which is painfully dragged on for three years, unexpectedly and suddenly quickly came to an end. Judging by what violations were investigated, revealing how severely he passed the court, and the Prosecutor at the meeting of June 22, generally demanded 6 years of imprisonment for four theatrical figures in the modern history of the Russian theatre, this case will go down as the bloodiest demonstrative whipping for artists.

Flogging for those who are exhausted by many hours of meetings in the Meshchansky court, house arrest, who is not one of the plays found out that this physical lack of freedom before any pandemic – Kirill Serebrennikov, Yuri itina, Sophia Appelbaum, Alexei Malopolska. For them.

Less than a day 3180 people of culture were mobilized and signed a document addressed to the new Minister of culture Olga Lyubimova. The call to withdraw the claim, which the Ministry of culture is affected in the case of the Seventh Studio and thus to contribute to the equitable resolution process.

Naive? Maybe, but signatures that are under this document to be cleared in any of naivety: entirely dear, marked with titles and state awards of the people – Anatoly Vasilyev, Dmitry Krymov, Adolf Shapiro, Yury Butusov, Grigory Kozlov, Boris uhananov, Marina Brusnikina, Dmitry Chernyakov, Alexander Galibin, Evgeny Pisarev, Mindaugas Karbauskis, Roman Theodore, Joseph Raihelgauz, Mikhail Bychkov, Alla Demidova, Olga Volkova, Danila Kozlovsky, Alexander Filippenko, Evgeniya Dobrovolskaya, Chulpan Khamatova, Alexander Ursulyak, Alexei Serebryakov, Anatoliy Belyy, Semyon Pastukh, Emil kapelush, Pavel Kaplevich, Nikolai Simonov, Aleksei Bartoshevich, Valery Todorovsky, Irina Prokhorova, Tatyana Tolstaya, Leonid Parfyonov…And journalists, theater critics, critics… – people with different views on contemporary art, among themselves often do not agree, United.

In the hope of a new Minister – as the last instance, an official who can reach out to people of their same cultural workshops, and also formally subordinates. Because the project “Platform”, which is the basis of the trial, was potrenirovatsja and it was financed by the Ministry of culture. Lowered and there he was with the state of the top – above does not happen.

the Previous Minister Vladimir Medinsky has not helped – would not, although he had the opportunity. But he chose to disown, to take the salute and deliver the slave to the mercy of the most humane court in the world. Not even taking into account the main trend of the state policy – its not give. Apparently, the defendants in the case, “the Seventh Studio” was not the level and status for Vladimir Medina.

Now, the Russian cultural helm – the woman, the weaker sex. But ��may be Olga Lyubimova, will be stronger, wiser and more merciful than its predecessor. Why I’m sure she understands the absurdity of the events, cannot see the veneer of cruelty and mockery of their same theatre, who is responsible for the expenditure of considerable public funds. But thanks to the support at least will not be destroyed, as some villains-murderers, sanctioned by the state of criminals.

Get whether she had the ability in the new government, to raise their voice in defense of THEIR? Among them, in fact there is directly and a former employee of the Department – Sophia Appelbaum. For some reason, she in the role of a single defendant for the financial service of the Ministry, which must oversee the accounting for expenditure of public funds. No?

But it seems that in the indictment the Prosecutor will run the old tale about the equality of all before the law and that “these theatrical” to be judged on justice of all. That’s only justice here absolutely superfluous word, because, even if not to take in the study of the multi-volume proceedings of the Seventh Studio and watch him from the side, can only be marveled his paradoxical for amplitude differences. Where suddenly there are sudden breaks with the most incredible statements (like, “do not steal, but saved”) and evidentiary examinations. Which immediately declared incorrect, and there were other, aggravating. As if some invisible force loosen the noose, while the other pulls her even tighter.

if There is such a large state game hope that somebody will believe that revealing the process end? Who? So I, among others, sign a petition to Minister of culture – as a last resort: “have a heart”.
