Ivan Kvasnitsky, a member of the Novosibirsk Coordinating Council for the Protection of Public Morality, Culture and Traditional Family Values, explained why he opposes Philip Kirkorov’s concert at the local Lokomotiv Arena. The singer has already been reported to the Prosecutor General’s Office. And today, March 3, Ivan planned to apply also to the governor of the region Andrey Travnikov. And it’s not just because of the dancing on the cross, the man says. Philip has a wagonload of such things and a small cart!
According to Ivan, turning to the authorities, he did not even suspect that this would cause such a resonance. Moreover, the first answer from the prosecutor’s office was “no”, and an appeal had to be filed.
But if the reaction has already begun, the social activist laughs, then it is necessary to bring it to the end – what was the cost of one statement of director Kirkorov Artem Kiyashko!
“He said that we are bad Orthodox! — says Kwasnicki, communicating with the Daily Storm. Philip is good. And I thought: well, if he really is like that, then this should be reflected in his work. So I started looking…”
“I spent the whole day studying Telegram! – ironic Siberian. – And learned a lot of interesting things. For example, that he was in Dubai with Urgant. He performed almost naked in Alma-Ata … This is from fresh! And participating in one of the programs, he was dressed in the colors of the Ukrainian flag.
Well, it is clear that the person is shocking. But it seems to me that in modern realities this shocking is a little inappropriate!
But perhaps the most fascinating discovery, the man says, was Philip’s joint project with Danya Milokhin.
“And it’s absolutely fantastic! he says. — I think they are two pair of boots. An interesting parallel: both appeared at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum at different times. Such a cherry on the cake! In this connection, I really liked the comment of the secretary of the organizing committee: “But you have Kirkorov come to the forum … So what about Kirkorov? Well arrived. The Lord also accepts sinners.
How about the fact that, taking some liberties, Philip always apologizes, as he did after dancing on the cross?
“Well, this is also somehow weak,” Kwasnitsky reflects. — Except for the cross there is enough! Remember the trick with a bunch of naked boys on MUZ-TV.
As Ivan clarifies, his struggle for morality has been going on for more than a year. For example, in 2014, he and the guys managed to ban a Marilyn Manson concert. To do this, even had to arrange a rally. And in 2022 – the performance of Rammstein.
“That was when Till Lindemann started the I Hate Children tour,” the activist says. – So, after our appeal to the authorities and personally to Bastrykin, it was first postponed, explaining this by the epidemiological situation, and then canceled. Same result!
It is also noteworthy that the concert organized by Philip, Kwasnitsky adds, should take place before a major Orthodox holiday. Indeed, on April 7, believers will celebrate the Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos into the temple.
“And April 16 is also Easter,” he recalls. “I don’t know if they brought it up on purpose or not, but it leaves an imprint!”
Recall that Kirkorov’s concert in Novosibirsk should take place on April 5. Ticket prices range from two to six and a half thousand rubles.
Gold. The Greatest Hits is a world-class show that attracts the most demanding and demanding audience, the announcement says. – Kirkorov’s concert is real life on stage. In each issue, the viewer will see a completely new story with its own inner drama!”
“If they saw an atheist in Philip, they were very much mistaken,” director of the artist Artem Kiyashko, in turn, told the NGS agency. “Remember: “He who is without sin among you, be the first to throw a stone at her!” These people are doing just that. They throw stones like saints.
