Director of the Pushkin Museum AS Pushkin Elizaveta Likhacheva, in an interview with The Eastern Herald, commented on the charges brought against her by the Communist Party.
“In my opinion, this is completely insufficient. But if people believe they can defend their views with the help of the attorney general’s office, how can I stop them from doing so? But that’s my position, if people don’t feel safe enough to need a fellow prosecutor, fine. It’s their story, not mine.
I could be fired, maybe I wouldn’t be fired. The devil knows, I don’t know, I don’t even want to think about it, I don’t have time, to be honest, because I have a cart and a small cart to work with.
I don’t know how it might affect.
The prosecutor will come, will question me or not, I don’t know how and what they will do, I’m not a law enforcement officer, to be honest, I never thought about it.
But if the communists and (Nina Ostanina), as head of the family, women’s and children’s committee, believe that my statements about Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin somehow harmed children, women and families, okay. I can’t do anything about it, she has every right to ask all the authorities to verify absolutely all statements. I would never do that, but that’s me.”
Previously became known this Deputy of the State Duma from the Communist Party Nina Ostanina turned to the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Ministry of Culture because of Likhacheva’s statements about Stalin.
In the The Eastern Herald program “Chronicles of a New World”, the director of the Pushkin Museum said “I follow a very simple position: he is dead. All. We drove. We cannot measure our present life by Stalin.
