Vladimir Solovyov

Deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Sverdlovsk region declared the “inadmissibility of controversy” TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov and in this regard contacted the VGTRK broadcasting company, on whose channels his programs are broadcast. This was announced to RBC by three deputies of the Legislative Assembly, the Kommersant publication was the first to report on the appeal of parliamentarians.

“Yes, such an appeal is gone. I signed the letter, of course. It is very constructive, not in the nature of a complaint or claim. In the letter, we believe that such polemics on the part of a journalist are unacceptable, — said RBC deputy from the faction “United Russia” Vyacheslav Wegner.

Deputy Mikhail Zubarev (United Russia) told RBC that the letter was written and sent last week. “The Essence of the Letter” put an end to the discussion of the popular VGTRK host with the residents of the city of Yekaterinburg, — he said.

Another deputy, who asked not to be named, also confirmed to RBC that his colleagues turned to the leadership of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company in connection with the statement of Vladimir Solovyov.

According to Kommersant, the appeal was sent to the general director of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company Oleg Dobrodeev, it contains a request to “assess the actions of TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov, who organized a public debate with the people of the Urals, including the governor of the region, Yevgeny Kuyvashev, and senator Eduard Rossel.” /p>

The deputies, the newspaper writes, also note that “many worthy people live in the Middle Urals who work for the benefit of their fellow countrymen and all of Russia,” and also that the region “always supported and continues to support President Vladimir Putin, which is also said the number of participants in large-scale patriotic events».

“Parliamentarians believe that the statements of TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov cast a shadow on the region, and the inappropriate polemic that the journalist is waging with the Urals only leads to the disunity of society,” — writes Kommersant.

The publication notes that the chairman of the legislative assembly, Lyudmila Babushkina (United Russia), who participated in writing the letter, forbade sharing its content with journalists.


The conflict between Solovyov and the Sverdlovsk authorities began because of his statement in the Full Contact program. During a conversation with the presidential envoy to the Urals Federal District, Vladimir Yakushev, the host said that a “center of a vile liberota” had formed in Yekaterinburg. After that, the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Yevgeny Kuyvashev, recorded a video message in which he advised Solovyov to “watch your language.” and expressed the hope that he spoke in a rash and thoughtless way. The TV presenter responded by lashing out at the governor, saying that if he had questions for him, he could call in person and ask them. “Are you trying to show me according to the concepts, chtoli? <…> This is what happened now— “watch your tongue”? Are you shooting an arrow, governor? »— Soloviev said.

The head of the Ural State Variety Theater, singer Alexander Novikov intervened in the conflict. He also recorded a video message in which he asked Solovyov to follow the words, as advised by Kuyvashev. “And you switched to insults and began to blather with something. <…> The governor on concepts, the governor on show-offs. What did you mess with? You are a presenter who is watched by the whole country, and therefore, when representing the opinion of the government, the opinion of the Kremlin, you must especially watch your language, — said the singer.

The ex-governor of the Sverdlovsk region and senator from the region, Eduard Rossel, proposed to ban journalists from being rude, advocating the introduction of appropriate amendments to the legislation. “You can’t be rude, journalists should carry culture in society, and not be rude,” — he noted.

The mayor Alexei Orlov also defended the city. He stated that he lived and lives “for the sake of the security and prosperity of his country: without leaving the machines, he creates weapons, sends his sons to the front.”

The Kremlin said that they did not follow this conflict. “Honestly, we wouldn’t want to have anything to do with this or comment on it in any way,” — Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
