Russian ban?

Apparently few in Russia have been happy with Hollywood lately.

"Russia considers ban on Armando Iannucci's film The Death of Stalin

Culture ministry adviser says comedy is a ‘planned provocation’ and may be part of western plot to destabilise Russia

Russian authorities are considering a ban on a black comedy about the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s death over fears that the film could lead to violent protests, a high-ranking adviser to the culture ministry has said.

Pavel Pozhigailo said The Death of Stalin, directed by Armando Iannucci – the man behind the political satires Veep and The Thick Of It – was a “planned provocation” aimed at angering Russia’s communists.

He speculated that the British-French production could be part of a western plot to destabilise Russia by causing rifts in society. Pozhigailo, a senior official with the state-appointed public chamber, said the culture ministry would refuse to allow the film to be screened in Russia if officials decided it had the potential to “incite hatred”.

Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said he trusted the culture ministry would act responsibly when deciding whether to grant The Death of Stalin a distribution licence.

The film’s satirical plot revolves around the Kremlin in-fighting that followed Stalin’s death from a stroke in 1953."


https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...eath-of-stalin

...The Death of Stalin is the second film about a historical figure to stir up controversy in Russia in recent months.

Matilda, about Russia’s last tsar, has provoked arson attacks across Russia by Orthodox Christian extremists who say it is “blasphemous” because it shows Nicholas II in erotic scenes.

Nicholas II, who was murdered alongside his family by Communist revolutionaries in 1918, was canonised by the Russian Orthodox church after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Natalya Poklonskaya, a prominent MP with Putin’s ruling party, said Matilda “offends the feelings of religious believers”, a criminal offence in Russia since 2013."

So Russia believes the West is planning to overthrow them with a movie?

Talk about paranoid...


Of course, Russia is a leading proponent of Revisionist History, so...:cool:

Overthrowing US with a Pokemon Go and Facebook ads is a completely different matter, of course.

... Pikachu to meddle in US politics is dastardly; Palin, Buscemi et. al. are laughably tame by comparison.
