Sergey Shnurov has stood up for the fans in the traditional form — a poem published in instagram.

Not to pass the last лòхом, people I continue not to measure. Time in Russian to sing bad, I’m listening to now Valeria. The place is spotless, it’s like a dungeon, And doubtless the glory of God. I W as in my life — mate on the Mat, even with my drunken mug. Let it be stricken multiple. I confess, it was not right that he sang as heard. Take all the words back to me. Let the reeds here never wavers.

Return verse was not long in coming. In the new poetic post Cords retorted that can afford to be unfashionable.

«To be free yet afford. / And put their names on things, / it the verb, the gerund is coming. / And the songs that they’re not opiates».

In conclusion, the Cords sharply responded about the idea of Prigogine to increase the penalties for the Mat at concerts, calling an impossible task to achieve, «matter only to the oligarchs.» This attack musician producer chose to comment on a short video, where he used a scene from the Soviet film «12 chairs» and a fragment of his performance.

However, he noted that he considers the work the «Leningrad» talented:

«I have no is no disagreement. «Leningrad» is a talented group, but they sell the Mat, and then they begin to give an example. They were followed by LJ, Face and others. They say: «why Shnurova can and can not we?» So one can break the law, while others can not?» — asks Prigogine.

The producer also compared the fans of «Leningrad» with children who like to break taboos.

«The absurdity is that the law is there, and the people on those shows do, unfortunately. You know, when I tell the children: «you can’t do that», and they still do. They laugh at the law,» – says Prigogine.

At the time of publication Sergey Shnurov has not commented on the latest attack Prigogine. In turn, the guitarist and the representative of group «Leningrad» Dmitry Guguchkina told RIA Novosti that the team is not involved in the conflict frontman with producer.

«The debate now stems purely hypothetical, so while the us is not concerned and comment here on behalf of the group nothing. Sergey in this situation acts with personal initiative,» — said the musician.

On the question of a possible increase in fines or the cancellation of concerts, he replied: «Wait and see».
