This order was reported by RIA Novosti on January 1. According to preliminary information, the organizers intend to hold a concert of the singer Lindemann, who became famous due to his participation in the Rammstein collective, in Novosibirsk on January 26.
However, at the end of 2021, local public activists appealed to the federal authorities with an appeal "to initiate a barrier to various anti-cultural phenomena". And now, according to the latest information, Bastrykin instructed his subordinates to check the arguments of the activists.
It is possible and even more than likely that the head of the Investigative Committee is in solidarity with the Novosibirsk public activists, since Alexander Bastrykin is known for his close attention to the moral and ethical problems of mass pop culture.
