Photo: Sergey of Fadeichev/TASS the Artistic director "Gogol center", the director Kirill Serebrennikov hasn't admitted guilt in plunder of 133 million rubles at implementation of the Platform project. As the correspondent of Business FM reports, he has said it at a meeting of Meshchansky Court of Moscow after the prosecutor Oleg Lavrov has read the indictment on business. On it has left an hour and a half. "I didn't recognize and I don't plead guilty. This charge not only is absurd, I have thought that at them [investigators] the printer has broken" — the defendant has told. He has noted what the state prosecutor, reading the indictment, repeated "same", according to him, "as a mantra". The prosecutor said that other defendants followed instructions of the director. At the same time Serebrennikov has emphasized that he was responsible not for financial, and only for "an art and ideological component" of the Platform project. He has added that the sounded words of the prosecutor are clear to him, but the sense is unclear. After that the person involved has made such offer: "I suggest the victim not to become flustered and explain to society what specifically wasn't enough for them from the Platform project. Also the innocence was declared by three other persons involved: the director of the Russian Academic Youth Theatre (RAYT) and the former official of Ministry of Culture Sofya Apfelbaum, the former CEO of ANO Seventh Studio Yury Itin (nowadays the theater director of the drama of Fedor Volkov in Yaroslavl) and also the ex-general producer of this firm Alexey Malobrodsky. So, Yury Itin has said that charge is clear to him, he doesn't plead guilty and wishes to give evidences after submission of all proofs. His relation to the brought charge was stated by the defender Yury Lysenko. He has noted that "the investigation has carried out an equal-sign between cashing in of money and plunder". However cashing in of money in Russia isn't forbidden. He has also pointed that the investigation hasn't carried out assessment of the taken place actions to find out, they exceeded the size of subsidies or not, and without it it was impossible to bring charge. Sofya Apfelbaum has said that to her charge is unclear. In this regard the court even had to announce a break that the lawyer Irina Poverinova has explained charge of the defendant. "The indictment doesn't reflect my indications, it contains a large number of mistakes. To me it is unclear what I am accused of where I have made it and as it was possible" — Apfelbaum has said. She has noted that her indications "have been distorted" and to her isn't clear, "from where the sum of [damage]" in 133,3 million rubles has undertaken. "I claim and is ready to prove that no violation of the law [at assignment for the Platform project] existed" — the defendant has said. She insisted that she hasn't received any material benefit from the project and wasn't engaged in control of expenditure of money, the department of economy and finance of Ministry of Culture knew it. Also the ambiguity of charge was declared by Alexey
