The Ministry of culture promised to take into account Kadyrov’s request not to show “Matilda” in Chechnya

Moscow. 9 Aug. INTERFAX – the Ministry of culture of Russia will take into account the wish of the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov about the exclusion of the Republic from the distribution certificate for the film “Matilda”, reported “Interfax” in the Department.

Earlier media reported that Kadyrov has sent a letter to the Minister of culture of Russia Vladimir Medinsky with a request to exclude the Chechen Republic from the distribution certificate for the film screening by Alexei Uchitel.

“The letter was received, noted, it is the right of Chechnya. Will consider their request,” – said “Interfax” the press service of the Ministry on Tuesday.

In a letter to R. Kadyrov, which leads to”Komsomolskaya Pravda”, said tens of thousands of people of different faiths who asked not to make public the release of the film in Russia, describing it as “deliberate mockery of the religious feelings of people, the insult of religious feelings and humiliation of human dignity, and the desecration of shrines and centuries-old history of the peoples of Russia”.

The letter also recalls the feats of the Caucasian cavalry division – “Wild division”, which consisted of residents of the North Caucasus and Transcaucasia, “Muslims, voluntarily sworn to the Emperor, Nicholas II, and commit to protect the Russian Empire against the enemy with their lives”.

“To live with honor, we must remember our history to be proud of and to honor those who fought for us. This memory is sacred and noble. We, the descendants of the winners should not only honour the memory of the defenders of the Motherland, but also to educate the young generation in the spirit of respect for its history,” the letter reads.

The movie “Matilda” will be released on October 26. He talks about the relationship between the future Emperor Nicholas II and the ballerina Matilda Kshesinskaya. The picture even before its release caused a wide resonance. In particular, it actively advocates against state Duma Deputy, ex-Prosecutor of the Crimea Natalia Polonskaya.
