Residents of Omsk gathered for a prayer vigil against the film by Alexei Uchitel «Matilda». About this on his page in «Vkontakte» said the priest Alexander Lemeshko.

The film deals with the fate of the ballerina Matilda Kschessinska, and fell in love with future Emperor Nicholas II. The picture leaves in the Russian hire on October 26 and has already caused a great public outcry.

The Deputy of the state Duma Natalia Polonskaya urged to revoke the rental license. Representatives of the public movement «the Royal cross» called «Matilda» anti-Russian and anti-religious provocation.

Opponents of the film believe that the Director created the image of Nicholas II did not match the picture canonized by the Church of the Emperor.

The Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky, in turn, said that the hysteria pumped around the work of the Teacher is lawlessness and censorship, and creates «a dangerous precedent of pandering to the irresponsible hysterics.»
