GROZNY, February 10. /TASS/. Fifty Shades of Grey, one of the most highly-anticipated movies, will not be released in Chechnya, a spokesperson for the Kinostar cinema network said on Tuesday.

"This film will not be shown in our movie theaters as it contradicts the mentality and religious beliefs of the majority of the republic's population," Madina Ayubova told TASS.

A spokesman for another local cinema network said he could not confirm the ban adding that the film's release is unlikely.

Muslim clerics in the neigbouring republic of North Ossetia on Monday spoke against the release. A member of the republic's Civic Chamber said they were planning to ask the Russian Prosecutor General's Office to check the movie for pornography.

He called on North Ossetian movie theatres "not to take part in the distribution of this scandalous film in the republic's territory."

An Orthodox activist in the Krasnodar Territory, southern Russia, also called for the film's ban, however, local culture officials said it was impossible under the current legislation.

Fifty Shades of Grey based on a controversial best-selling novel will be released in Russia on February 12.

The film has already been banned in Malaysia, a predominatnly Muslim country, as unfit for the local audience.
