A participant in the Citizen Poet project, actor Mikhail Efremov, who became an accomplice in a fatal accident in Moscow, does not consider himself an oppositionist. This was reported to RBC by his lawyer Elman Pashayev.
“He told me:“ What is the opposition? I’m an actor, I’m a clown. That’s what they write to me, I’ll say it, ”Pashayev explained.
The day before, Efremov’s lawyer said that the actor had a heart attack. According to Pashayev, the artist became ill last night. His family wanted to call an ambulance, but Efremov dissuaded relatives. Efremov’s condition improved on the morning of June 25. However, due to malaise, the actor could not visit the mother’s grave – on this day was the anniversary of her death. According to Pashayev, the actor is depressed.

The accident with the participation of Mikhail Efremov occurred on June 8. Driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee, the actor drove into the oncoming lane on Smolenskaya Square and collided with a Lada van, which was driven by the courier of the Delikateska online store Sergey Zakharov. As a result, the injured in serious condition was taken to the hospital. However, he passed away the next day.
As stated in the conclusion of the examination, at the time of the accident, Efremov was intoxicated. At the same time, the results of a psychiatric examination showed that the actor has no mental disorders.
A criminal case was instituted against Efremov under Part 4 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code (violation of traffic rules while intoxicated and resulting in the death of a person through negligence), as well as under Art. 228.1 of the Criminal Code (illegal production, sale or transfer of narcotic drugs), according to which Efremov passes as a witness.
Dobrovinsky called the joyful results of the psychiatric examination of Efremov
On June 9, the court sent the actor under house arrest for two months.
A few days after the accident, Efremov recorded a video message in which he apologized to the relatives of the deceased. However, they did not accept the actor’s apology, considering them belated.
The lawyer of the family of the deceased Alexander Dobrovinsky said that the relatives did not intend to accept compensation from the actor, but were interested in the court making a fair decision.
On June 23, Pashayev announced on the air of Ekho Moskvy radio station that Efremov was ready to adopt Zakharov’s children. Later, in a conversation with RIA Novosti, the lawyer said that his client plans to take care of the children, but “not in the sense of adopting according to documents.” The son of the deceased, Valery, commenting on the words of Efremov about the readiness to adopt the children of the deceased, called the offer of the actor an insult.
