The frontman of the group “Leningrad” Sergey Shnurov during its first meeting of the Council for culture at the state Duma made an important statement.
In the course of the hearings dedicated to the bill “On culture”, the musician lashed out at the Ministry of culture, reports “Izvestia“.
“In any normal country there is no Ministry of culture. I will defend this position: all disperse, like a sailor Zhelezniak,” said Shnurov.
The musician also noted that he had agreed to join the Council in order to show that MPs and senators are far from the people.
On February 26 it became known that the Cords entered the public Council under the state Duma Committee on culture. The list of participants is also the Director Karen Shakhnazarov, musician Andrei Makarevich, the special representative of Russian President for international cultural cooperation Mikhail Shvydkoi and other prominent figures of Russian culture.
State Duma Deputy Vitaly Milonov compared the inclusion of the leader of group “Leningrad” in the composition of the public Council with poisonous fast food. According to him, the discussion of culture needs to engage the representatives of religious organizations, not “songster, which tomorrow will forget everything.”
