The Investigative Committee found no crime in Anton Krasovsky’s call to drown Ukrainian children. About it in my telegram channel reported Moscow City Duma deputy Yevgeny Stupin, who submitted a request to the Investigative Committee.

The agency did not find information about the “prepared offense” in the words of the former director of broadcasting the Russia Today TV channel in Russian. Representatives of the Investigative Committee also added that Stupin’s request did not fall within their competence, and advised the deputy to contact the police.

Context. Anton Krasovsky interviewed the writer Sergei Lukyanenko in his Antonyms program. During the broadcast, Lukyanenko said that he traveled to Ukraine as a child. According to the writer, local children told him that the country was occupied by “Muscovites”.

In response to the words of Lukyanenko, Krasovsky proposed to “drown” and “burn” Ukrainian children who became “victims of propaganda”. “He said directly:“ Muscovites occupied “- and immediately you throw it straight into the river with a violent turbulent current,” added a former RT employee.

Four days after the broadcast, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan called the statement of the ex-director of broadcasting “wild and disgusting.” According to her, “it’s hard to believe that Krasovsky sincerely believed that children should be drowned.” Simonyan also said that she froze cooperation with Krasovsky because she and other RT employees “cannot allow even the thought that one of us is capable of sharing such a game flickered.”

Later the head of the UK Alexander Bastrykin instructed check his statements.
