In Ukraine, the scandalous issue of the study "Quarter 95" about the burnt house of Valeria Gontareva.
They fueled the passion that the National Assembly, named after Gregory Verevka, participated in the derision. His leader receives threats.
The choir rope sang the anthem on Ukraine's Independence Day. Then the team was introduced to the "95th Quarter" and the holiday was prepared by Quarter Concert. Both sides enjoyed the collaboration. The choir was invited to open the recent Ukraine-Portugal match, also organized by the Quarterly team.
And also – on one "Evening Quarter." As a result, a song was heard on the burned house of Valeria Gontareva in which the following words were heard:
"The house burned, burned, in London a woman wept"
"What about sadness? People were making noise and crying and started grilling."
Not everyone appreciates the joke. Culture Minister Vladimir Borodyansky hurried to apologize to Valery Gontareva.
"In my value system, I'm glad someone's house is burnt – blackmailing that gives permissiveness, this behavior model cannot be supported or justified, it can only be stopped," said Ukrainian Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports Vladimir Borodjanski.
Economy Minister Timothy Milovanov said: the joke about the former head of the National Bank is no joke at all. And it can even scare investors away.
"They do not understand how much power today is independent of Kolomoisky and other oligarchs. The 95th quarter is connected with power. The jokes against Gontareva can also be seen as a confirmation of the ties between the oligarchs and the government," said Economy Minister Timofei Milovanov.
Prime Minister Alexei Goncharuk was more restrained.
"I think it is not normal to rejoice and laugh at others. But I believe that there are many satirical publications in the world, teams of a very different style," said Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Goncharuk.
The criticism was also anonymous. Choir director Zinovy Korinets flips through a long list of SMSs with insults and threats.
"Man, write a cancellation letter," – said the director of the choir in one of the SMS messages.
The Choir Rope is a government organization. But they only get paid here from the budget. For the rest – transportation, equipment and more, they make their own money. The performance of the choir, quite officially, costs 27.5 thousand hryvnia. Paid "quarter". But they say in the choir, they agreed not because of the money, but because of the program’s popularity, successful experience and persuasion.
"Here's the backing vocals, the girls sing along, and that's it. We were told -" Don't worry, the whole Internet is joking, someone wrote the words on the Internet and it is unknown who. Well, I had the recklessness to agree, ”says a National Assembly general manager named Rope Zinovy Korinets.
The choir defends itself in the fourth. They say the criticism is undeserved and they regret it, but not for their joke.
A quarter is an acute political satire, as it were, is and will be. Even if some politicians don't like it. Politicians, their actions, and the consequences of their actions that millions of Ukrainians are experiencing, give us cause for satire, "he said in quarter 95."
I liked the number and longtime opponent of Valeria Gontareva – Igor Kolomoisky.
"So, not even her last property burned down. What, only her house burned down? And how many houses on the Donbass burned down?" – says Igor Kolomoisky.
Valeria Gontareva accepted the apology of the Minister of Culture and the director of the choir, But Kolomoisky's words reacted differently.
"He said he really liked it. Moreover, he said that my last property was not burned. So, as far as I understand, I need to understand on TV that a sequel will come?" asks Valeria Gontareva.
The sequel to the story may be for the chorus. Golos party leader Svyatoslav Vakarchuk called the situation "bottom." His colleagues in the European Solidarity political solidarity group suggested that they no longer invite the team to open and close parliamentary sessions. The Ministry of Culture will also consider whether to fund the choir in the future.
Recall that on the night of September 16-17 burned Gontarev's house near Kiev– The owner reported it. According to her, the fire department did not have time to extinguish it and the house was completely burned. Police later said surveillance cameras captured an unknown man climbing over the fence. As a result, the criminal proceedings under part 2 of Art. 194 (Deliberate destruction or damage to property).
