MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Investigative Committee has launched an inspection of Russian flag desecration by a musician from US rock group Bloodhound Gang at a concert in Odessa, Committee sources told Tass on Monday.
They said that “despite the fact that the Prosecutor’s Office has not yet supplied materials of Interior Ministry investigative authorities’ checks into the desecration of a Russian flag by a Bloodhound Gang musician, procedural checks have started upon instructions of Alexander Bastrykin taking into account the cynicism of the crime, demonstrating obvious disrespect of the Russian statehood”.
They said inquiries about legal assistance will be shortly sent to the United States and Ukraine.
During a performance by Bloodhound Gang in the Ukrainian port of Odessa on Wednesday, Jared Hasselhoff crammed a Russian flag inside his pants and literally wiped his behind with it, as shown in a video posted on YouTube. The band’s scheduled appearance at the KUBANA festival near the southern Russian city of Anapa was cancelled.
The musicians were led away through the back-door entrance, but the angry audience still managed to throw tomatoes and eggs at them. Their performance was cancelled.
Anapa police questioned the musician and referred materials to the city prosecutor’s office. Meanwhile, sources from the prosecutor’s office say they have not received information from police and in the meantime checks by investigative authorities proceed.
