MOSCOW, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of the Upper House of the Russian parliament Valentina Matviyenko has criticized as ”blasphemy” a question put to the audiences of Dozhd television in connection with the 70th anniversary since lifting the Leningrad blockade.
Nonetheless, Matviyenko does not think that Dozhd television should be closed. Its journalists and the journalist community should admit the mistake and apologize, Matviyenko said.
The question put to the visitors to Dozhd Internet portal caused uproar in society. Deputies of the State Duma have branded it as "rehabilitation of Nazism and an act of betrayal of their own people".
