The City Duma of Yekaterinburg sent an appeal to the city prosecutor's office with a request to check the words of the presenter Vladimir Solovyov about the city. This was reported to RBC by the speaker of the city parliament, Igor Volodin.

“Veterans, social activists turned to us in the city duma in order to determine how much this all looks like according to the law and give a legal assessment. Therefore, I sent all this, all complaints to the city prosecutor's office. The Duma does not give a legal assessment. Literally recently [sent an appeal to the prosecutor's office]»,— Volodin said.

RBC turned to Solovyov for comment and sent a request to the prosecutor's office of the Sverdlovsk region.

Earlier, the deputies of the City Duma said that they had applied to the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company with a request “to assess the actions of TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov, who organized a public debate with the Urals, including the governor of the region Yevgeny Kuyvashev and Senator Eduard Rossel.” The parliamentarians considered that the presenter's statements cast a shadow on the region, and his “inappropriate polemics” with the Urals leads to the division of society.


At the end of April, Solovyov, on the air of his program, called Yekaterinburg the center of the “vile liberota”. To these words, the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Yevgeny Kuyvashev, answered him, advising him to “watch your language.” Solovyov commented on his reaction on the air of his program, stating: “Are you hammering an arrow for me, governor?”

Mayor Alexei Orlov, senator from the region Eduard Rossel and head of the Yekaterinburg theater, singer Alexander Novikov, also reacted to the host's statement about the city. Rossel later argued for amendments to the media law “prohibiting the use of the media for the purpose of subjective out-of-court evaluation of citizens' actions.” He explained that “it is impossible to be rude”; and journalists should bring culture to society.
