“We nekrofilskie state, it loves the dead more than the living. Then they called names of streets, squares, metro stations, and before that kill,” – said Raikin, talking about the crippled lives of Russian poets.


The statement of the actor criticized the state Duma Deputy Vitaly Milonov.


“It is strange to hear this from a man who is much less talented than him, of course, brilliant famous father, whose name is called by many the city facilities,” – said Milonov.


“Raikin has already described “this Raska” nedogosudarstvom, while not forgetting to beg for money for their questionable performances, praising homosexuality and other disgusting and an abomination. I hope this time will be adequate reaction on the part of those who give him money,” he added.


In October 2016, the artistic Director of “Satirikon” theatre, national artist of Russia Konstantin Raikin spoke out sharply against “fighters for morality” and spoke out against censorship in the arts and attempts of public organizations to encroach on the freedom of creativity.
