“I, as you know, the atheist. Therefore, I believe that there is no God. It’s not that I run around and shout “no, no” from morning till evening, but do not hide their beliefs”, – the journalist wrote.
“I would like to get an exhaustive explanation: confessing this look, I’m violating the criminal code? Maybe the Patriarch will tell you, if I insult his religious feelings, arguing that there is no God? Maybe the President of the constitutional court will tell me if I have the right to think what I think and Express what I Express? Maybe the President will bring clarity, not expecting me in court and, God willing, excuse the pun, a lenient sentence?” – asks questions Vladimir Pozner.
