The speaker of the national Assembly of Ingushetia, Zelimkhan Yevloev surprised by the content shown on the First channel a documentary film about Beria, who, in his opinion, offends the feelings of repressed peoples, and in this regard wrote a letter to TV guide, reported in the account of the regional Parliament in the social network Instagram.

«On Sunday, may 28, on the First channel shown documentary and historical film in the series «the land of the Soviets. Forgotten leaders»… the Main protagonist of the said series – Lavrenti Beria, the bloody tyrant and a despot, is praised in the film for about two hours», — stated in the message.

According to Yevloyev, the filmmakers insulted the feelings of repressed peoples. «From their words it appears that the gang was engaged only in the North Caucasus and that the possible participation of individuals in gang attacks gave the right to send to Kazakhstan and Central Asia of whole peoples,» — said the speaker of the Ingush Parliament.

In this regard, he sent an open letter to the General Director of channel one Konstantin Ernst. «We find very strange that in the recent trend of the glorification of the individual odious politicians of the Soviet period is supported by the official authorities, and, accordingly, the Federal mass media», — said Yevloyev.

RIA Novosti has not yet managed to review the First channel.

By Stalin on 23 February 1944 the Ingush and Chechen peoples were deported to Central Asia and Siberia, and the Chechen-Ingush autonomy was abolished. Two people held in exile for 13 years and have started to return home after 9 January 1957, when the decree of Nikita Khrushchev, their autonomy was restored and restrictions on the movement of «special migrants» has been removed. According to historians, almost half of the deported Ingush died on the way to exile, and on the spot settlement.
