In relation to appeals of public representatives and mass media reports related to plays of Sovremennik theatre, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed his subordinates to study and assess the facts reported in the publications.

In this relation the the Investigative Committee of Russia promptly responds to specific facts of insulting the memory of defenders of the Fatherland, which violates existing legislation.
