An artist of whom Russia should be delighted is being humiliated and insulted
Russian police and security have specialists confined a honor winning theater and film chief and assaulted one of Moscow's most noticeable theaters over a claimed multi-million pound misrepresentation.
Kirill Serebrennikov, whose disputable secondary school show The Student won the Francois Chalais prize finally year's Cannes film celebration, was taken in for addressing after a first light attack on his apartment.At the same time masked riot police seeked the Gogol Centre, the Moscow theatre where Mr. Serebrennikov is the artistic director.
Mr Serebrenikov was being addressed by the Investigative board of trustees on Tuesday evening. It is uncertain whether he has been charged or is formally being dealt with as a suspect.
The chief said he was "in total shock" at the inquiry.
Russia's service of culture said it was uninformed of the explanations behind the inquiry of the theater.
The police attacks drew judgment from Russia's social world class, with many figures in the performing expressions marking an announcement depicting Mr Serebrennikov as "an honest, fair, and open person."
Mikhail Baryshnikov, a noticeable veteran ballet artist, called the move "extremely worrying."
"An artist of whom Russia should be proud is being humiliated and insulted. And since this is a man known for his independence and love of freedom, a man who has repeatedly spoken with bold political statements, these sudden repressions look especially bad",Mr Baryshnikov wrote on Facebook.
Supporters of the Gogol Center, which is generally viewed as Russia's debut avant-gard theater, said the assault may be associated with Mr Serebrennikov's uncompromising creations inspecting contemporary life in Russia.
Mr Serebrennikov's works have as often as possible been viewed as incredulous of both the Russian government and the inexorably impact of the Russian Orthodox Church in broad daylight life.
His honor winning film The Student, in light of one of his plays, takes after a Russian secondary school kid's turn towards christian fundamentalism.
