Any attempt to ban the screening of the film «Matilda» directed by Alexey Uchitel is the lawlessness and censorship, and police is necessary to prevent pressure on the state and film business from the «uncontrolled activists,» reads the statement of the Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky, at the disposal of RIA Novosti.

«Should clarify the issue with all sorts of Amateur «restrictions», «restrictions», etc. the Rental license of the Federal sample is the sole document that allows hire on the entire territory of the Russian Federation. The film is rated 16+. This is the only statutory limit on terms of office. Any intentions of «initiativesto» on the ground «to ban» any attempts to exert pressure on private or municipal cinemas — this is pure lawlessness and censorship, which is directly prohibited by the Constitution of the Russian Federation», — said Medina.

According to him, the Ministry of culture tried to the last to refrain from interfering in the scandal around the «Matilda», but recent events compel to speak with certainty. «Not ready to unravel the motivations of different-sized «activists»-mongers arrogantly call themselves «Orthodox». I am often accused of excessive conservatism. And that’s how conservative I want to say that the self-styled «activists» diskreditiert and state cultural policy, and the Church,» he said.

Medina asked law enforcement agencies to ensure compliance with the law, strictly prevent pressure on the state and film business from the uncontrolled «activists» with their socially dangerous methods of imposing their beliefs. «Please give a principled and fair assessment of their actions. Let’s demonstrate civic responsibility: to adhere to the law, common sense, respect each other,» said the Minister.
