Political passions started around the dismemberment professor Oleg Sokolov

“A blood-curdling story.” This is Velurov-Bronevoy at the Pokrovskie Gates. Well, very funny. And now … A blood-curdling story.

Maniac in hype

I came from vacation, from Israel. I turned on the radio at the airport. Everything, literally all serious political programs, the hosts of these programs spoke only about this, and about nothing else. Just about that.

“Varya, I can’t get used to this. You know, everyone around someone is catching, grabbing, shooting, whores laugh, ambushes … I no longer know when I’m guilty, when I’m right. ” (“The meeting place cannot be changed,” shown the other day on the “Culture” channel.)

So the Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky said that the mass media (TV first of all) hype on this topic – about how the assistant professor killed and dismembered his love. And he even called this associate professor Joker. It is understandable why: the minister knew the assistant professor, and now he is in excruciating pain.

But the hype was for sure. Of course, Malakhov, of course, Borisov, First and Second. Malakhov was even given carte blanche, his show was extended to complete dimensionlessness, beyond the bounds and boundaries. The guys have already performed twice, but is this a record? Here Armen Dzhigarkhanyan had a record, there our favorite high-fires were noted about twenty-five times. And Diana Shurygina was a record. So everything is still ahead.

But who were these people who were called on the talk shows? Many, it seems, potential Sokolovs, are the same psychos and maniacs. It’s just not destiny yet … What were they carrying there! They talked about the immortal role of Dostoevsky in this terrible crime, Petersburg in general, Raskolnikov as such, as a real character. And it is not clear who was no longer in himself: the so-called family friend who immediately abandoned the docent-dismemberment, or the ex-wife, ready to provide the murderer and sadist with her apartment for living. Of course, there was Nevzorov, the chief analyst for this kind of hot little things, and, of course, Karaulov, who, of course, said that a little more – and our next killer will be our Alexander Glebovich. To which Glebovich immediately retorted: “Looking at how you look, you will not become a murderer. See what has become of your face. You will burst soon. ” I think, after such immortal phrases, Malakhov and Borisov only rubbed their hands with terrible pleasure.

And at the “Culture” in the program of Mikhail Shvydkoy “Agora”, the bloody professor of the Sorbonne, the Knight of the Legion of Honor, was also invisibly present. The intelligentsia offered to shoot a movie about him, called him the main character of the day (well, yes, the day, because after a while this Sokolov will be forgotten anyway, others will appear). That is, the smartest people in Russia are already making a meme, a symbol of him. Guess it.

Well, that’s okay, political passions have already started around Sokolov. The democratic community points a finger at the statesmen: he is yours, he handled with you. Patriots-statesmen in response hint: aha, an intellectual, that means a liberal, no, you’re lying, you won’t take it – he’s yours! That is, the maniac Sokolov is thrown over the net like a tennis ball.

And the eyes are so cold, cold … Whether it’s Ukraine, that’s where the true passion is. But here’s another observation after the vacation. Artyom Sheinin (“Time Will Show”) had the same father of three children who miraculously managed to take his offspring first from Sweden to Poland, and then home to Russia. And their mother, his wife, became mentally ill. So this heroic man was attacked by almost the entire studio: how did he dare to leave Mother Russia for this damn Sweden, and even with children. “Traitor!” – hung in the air. And Sheinin … Yes, the eyes are cold, cold.

This is what we are: we are tearing our hearts across Ukraine from day to day, and the unfortunate hero who has returned to us is appointed as an enemy of the people. And, of course, Oleg Sokolov is so interesting. Already horror.

And now Humpback!

How to return a masterpiece to its modern shine? So that they looked again and gasped with pleasure. So that today, like forty years ago … It’s very simple: you need to show a masterpiece on the Kultura channel.

They did just that with the “Meeting Place”, which cannot be changed. However, this film does not need rehabilitation at all times. And yet … He began to be shown on the channel “Culture” on the Day of the police (well, how can you say “police”?). Yes, and for the fortieth anniversary of the release. And immediately new meanings appeared!

Shown in the same Soviet regime from 1979. When everyone was watching, when the streets were empty and everyone, absolutely everyone, from the academician to the last bandit, sat and watched the TV without stopping. This is how Kultura transported us to that cherished Soviet era, to that stagnation of the name of Brezhnev, for which we yearn so much. And it was great.

And more … Since “Culture”, then, look here, while knowing by heart every word, every gesture, the look of Zheglov and Sharapov, Humpbacked and Kirpich with Ruchechnik, new cultural meanings. Because the show on this channel gives air, entourage, form for the “Meeting Place”. And that’s great.

Painfully familiar image!

The usual qualifying match for Euro 2020, unremarkable – Ireland – Denmark. Yes, not France, not Germany or even the Netherlands. But something very important happened.

At first I couldn’t believe my ears: a painfully familiar voice. Oh really? Is it really him, Yura, Yuri Albertovich? It turned out, yes, I heard right – this is Rozanov.

It was not on the air for a year and a half. Ever since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, I wondered: why the best commentator in the country does not report on such a world championship? Why is he only given some out-of-the-box games that can be counted on one hand?

It turned out that everything is simple and scary at the same time. A person is sick, it happens. He fell seriously ill. And disappeared from the ether, his voice disappeared.

At the TEFI ceremony, he even got into the nomination, but Dima Guberniev received the statuette. Probably, they decided to support Yura, but by the way, he is already the best and does not need such pity. He is a great commentator on football and hockey, no one comments like that. And for many, he is a living symbol of the New Year, because, as always, he led the youth world hockey championships, which were held precisely on these happy holidays. And how he did!

But there is no man, and they began to forget Yura. Of course, there are so many others! And so he returned … Believe me, for us, the fans, this is just happiness. Health, Yuri Albertovich!
