MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. The prosecutor's office has refused to open a criminal case over vandalism against leader of the Bozhya Volya (God’s Will) Orthodox Christian movement Enteo who vandalized a Moscow art exhibition last month, a source in the law enforcement bodies told TASS on Monday.
"Police officers filed a petition to the prosecutor’s office requesting to open a criminal case under the vandalism article against leader of the God’s Will movement Dmitry Tsorionov (Enteo) and his associates. However, representatives of the supervisory agency refused to negotiate opening of a criminal case," the source said.
On August 14, representatives of the God’s Will movement ransacked the exhibition called Sculptures We Do Not See at Moscow’s Manege saying the exhibits offended the feelings of believers. Several works were damaged. The museum community represented by the Union of Russian Museums, the Russian branch of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and heads of major federal and regional museums stood up for the exhibition expressing confidence that exhibition halls and museum should be protected from actions that resulted in damaged works of art.
