Veteranskiye Vesti newspaper turned to the Investigation Committee with a request to check singer's Manizha song “Russian Woman” for Eurovision. According to the authors of the appeal, the song offends Russian women.

Two experts of the publication: Doctor of Law, Professor I.V. Ponkin and Doctor of Psychology, Professor V.I. Slobodchikov, analyzed the lyrics of the song and found signs of incitement of interethnic hatred between Russians and Asians and between Russians and Jews. And this is Article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation . Scientists note that the song was written in order to deliberately ridicule the collective image of a Russian woman in a mocking, insulting, parody form. In particular, the costume, which Manizha is wearing, should, according to scientists, emphasize "the obviously awkward clothes of Russian women, looking absurd, defiantly sloppy and absolutely tasteless." And the singer's repeated shocking grimacing on stage, the bulging (goggling) of Manizha's eyes creates the image of mentally disabled, clearly abnormal persons with signs of mental and behavioral deviations.

Investigators will study the lyrics of the song for illegal statements in it, the RF IC told RIA Novosti.

Let us remind you that this year Manizha will perform on behalf of Russia at Eurovision. The majority of Russians voted for it. The results of the voting were announced on March 8 on the air of Channel One. Singer Manizha (Manizha Dalerovna Sangin) is from Tajikistan. She supports the ideas of feminism.

After the announcement of the voting results, users on social networks condemned this choice, noting that the singer is not Russian, and the words of her song offend all women in Russia.
