MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. The United Russia party has denied media reports claiming that former Crimean prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya was prohibited from making any public declarations after her last week’s controversial statements.
"No, of course, there were no bans. This is not true," Adalbi Shkhagoshev, first deputy chairman of the United Russia party faction in the State Duma, told TASS on Monday.
At the same time, Shkhagoshev stressed that "the big achievement of the United Russia party is adequate discipline, when someone’s personal opinion is a personal opinion, while the fractional opinion is a fractional opinion." Moreover, "any opinion that resonates in the society is at least a reason to think," he stressed. "The level of responsibility in general is proportional to the level of people’s support," he said.
Last week Poklonskaya filed a request to the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office to inspect the film Matilda by director Alexey Uchitel. She did that after receiving complaints from several public associations that said the film offends the religious feelings of people. Taking to her blog later, Poklonskaya wrote that Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin were "the monsters of the 20th century."
