Philip Kirkorov’s anniversary show, for which he had been preparing for the last few months, turned into a scandal. The name of the king of pop does not leave the pages of the press: for the dance on the overturned cross, which the artist arranged in the Kremlin with the song “Mary Magdalena”, he himself is literally ready to be crucified. “Demonic dances” have already been condemned by Maria Shukshina, Boris Korchevnikov, representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church … And the founder of the Tsargrad TV channel, Konstantin Malofeev, turned to the General Prosecutor’s Office with a lawsuit to initiate a case penal. against the singer
“A peacock man riding on a cross, the greatest of Christian shrines, is nothing more than deliberate blasphemy and an insult to the feelings of millions of believers,” Malofeev said, adding that Kirkorov lives in a world of glamor and is offline. with reality, “there is no other way to explain what is happening and an anniversary banquet for 500 people with black caviar, spider crabs and octopus”.
In the meantime, as much as skeptics may doubt, Philip Kirkorov will have to answer to the law. After all, a statement to the Attorney General’s Office is not a joke: the supervisory authority is obliged to respond.
– Verification against Philip Kirkorov will be unequivocal: it is necessarily carried out if there is a request, – star lawyer Andrey Aleshkin told kp.ru. – With a high degree of probability, Philip Kirkorov will be interviewed. The survey is conducted orally: this is a conversation in which the four signs of a crime are established: the subject, the object, the subjective and objective sides of the crime. If all four signs are present, as a result of verification, a criminal or administrative case is initiated. In my opinion, there is no crime here, the most possible is an administrative sanction according to Part 2 of art. 5.26 of the Code of Administrative Offenses “Intentional public desecration of objects of religious veneration.” The punishment provided for in this article is a fine of thirty to fifty thousand rubles or compulsory labor of up to 120 hours.
The most unpleasant thing for Kirkorov so far is a visit to the prosecutor’s office. This is a required verification item.
– Philip Bedrosovich must be called to give explanations, so far as a witness. Then, if there is corpus delicti, a process is opened and then the interrogations begin. In this case, one can go from a witness to a defendant status, – specified the lawyer.
In the event that the case of “dancing on the cross” becomes a crime, Philip Kirkorov faces up to 1 year behind bars or a fine of up to 300 thousand rubles.
