The head of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Bastrykin, instructed to initiate a criminal case against the actor Artur Smolyaninov, who allowed himself a number of public anti-Russian statements. This is reported by the RF IC in its telegram channel.
Recall that yesterday Smolyaninov said in an interview that if he went to participate in a special operation, he would certainly be on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He also added that he “doesn’t give a damn” about Russia, even if “only the Jewish Autonomous Okrug remains in it, and everything else turns into radioactive ashes.”
At the same time, he mentioned the artist Soslan Fidarov, whom he knew, who allegedly died during a special military operation, and stated that if he had met him on the battlefield, he would have “killed him without any doubt.”
But Soslan Fidarov was not only alive, but also commented with a smile on Smolyaninov’s speech: “Arthur, can you imagine I’m alive. And all the friends who said that I died, you were deceived. Arthur, I watched your interview, you have a multi-million audience. They believe you, and you deceive them. Arthur, don’t do this. Regarding the fact that you will shoot me on the battlefield, Arthur, we both understand that you will never do this, only because you will never be on the battlefield. Arthur, I send you greetings from Mamai, from Alexei, from Nikita, from Magomed, from Akhmed, from Alan, from and from all those guys who will no longer return home. Arthur….”
It is known that last year Smolyaninov left his wife with two children. And in the fall of this year, he fled to Latvia to avoid mobilization.
After Smolyaninov’s statements, Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Security Council, spoke online: “There, on the Internet / telegrams, a discussion has resumed about how to deal with traitors who have defected to the enemy and want their Fatherland to perish. Including some insignificant bits of shit, who until recently considered themselves to be among the so-called intellectual elite. I have recently commented on this topic. Well, then a serious conversation began between the bosses, how to act: “according to the law” or “justice”. I’ll have to give a clarification. Of course, only by law. But if the law does not work or does not reach the goal, then according to the special rules of wartime. Let us recall the experience of the Great Patriotic War, and other countries as well. In times of war, there have always been such special rules. And quiet groups of impeccably inconspicuous people who effectively perform them.
“Of course, according to the law. So far, the State Duma has not adopted wartime laws and they are not signed by the President – only according to the Constitution and the Law, ”Andrei Klishas, chairman of the Federation Council committee on constitutional legislation and state building, answered Medvedev.
As a result, the State Duma deputy Sultan Khamzaev was the first to file an application against Smolyaninov to the Russian Investigative Committee. He stated that “after his statements, Smolyaninov should repeat the path of the blogger Alexander Nevzorov, who was recognized as a foreign agent and put on trial for discrediting the Russian Armed Forces.”
The well-known film director Ivan Okhlobystin, who often visits the Donbas and distinguished himself by his help to its residents and military personnel participating in a special military operation, also spoke about the artist Smolyaninov. He said that the artists Roman Kachanov and Aleksey Panin, who had fled abroad, “sneeze” him for “conservative views and support for the authorities.”
“Okay, Roma, my godson Arturchik Smolyaninov advises me to take me to court. And he also doubts my mental health. He also ran away. Now he admires European culture and wildly mourns the fate of the Fatherland he left behind. But he was such a cool boy. Hard worker, romantic! I baptize him under the name Longinus. There was such a holy warrior. Roman centurion piercing Christ with a spear. Delivered from the torment of the Savior. A very beautiful image. I don’t hate them. I should, but I don’t. You see, I’m really crazy.”
It seems that our artists have become real hostages of their real estate and foreign currency accounts abroad. And this once again suggests that you need to live here and now, and not count on the favor of the Western elite and special services, which, having used it in this way, will still throw the waste material into the dustbin of history. After all, traitors are not loved anywhere.
The Latvians have already begun to make fun of Smolyaninov. After all, for them he is still a Muscovite. Riga activists of the Stand with Ukraine movement (for Ukraine) handed Smolyaninov a summons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Which is logical after he expressed his desire to serve on the side of the Kyiv authorities. But the actor refused to take the agenda from the hands of the activists, and then completely ran away from them. But not from notoriety: TV presenter Otar Kushanashvili said that “only a bastard can say such words about his own country.”
