At a meeting with members of the Council for Culture and the Arts and the Council for the Russian Language, Vladimir Putin promised to protect the culture from attacks by hooligans.
All vandals, the president says, must be punished in accordance with the law. We remind you that at the moment the State Duma is developing amendments to the article on vandalism in relation to objects of art.
At the same time, Vladimir Putin called on art workers to independently determine where the line between “cynical outrage and creative action” is, since “the artist’s measure of responsibility is particularly high.”
The editors of uznayvse.ru want to remind about two similar cases that have occurred over the past year. This is the Vandal Orthodox activists at the Vadim Sidur exhibition in the Manezh Capital and the exhibition of the photographer Jock Sturgess, accused by “Officers of Russia” in propagating pedophilia.
