State Duma deputy from the LDPR faction Igor Lebedev defended goalkeeper “Wings of the Soviets” Yevgeny Frolov, whom the football club decided to punish for an interview criticizing the Russian government. The day before, the athlete said that “absurd laws” are being adopted in the country, because the authorities want to keep people “under the hood”, although they “don’t care about the people”. The Kryliy Sovetov management stated that the football player did not coordinate the interview with FC, thereby violating the terms of the contract and incurring disciplinary action.
The resonance caused an interview with Evgeny Frolov on the YouTube channel Bigi Football. The footballer expressed dissatisfaction, in particular, that despite the coronavirus pandemic in the country, the draft campaign continues. According to him, recruits in the army “go without masks, without protective equipment.” “What is the logic: you can go to church, everything is possible in the army, but you cannot go out into the woods alone? You can ride the subway, but you cannot drive your own car. Where is the logic?” – he said. According to Frolov, “in spite of any ban, restaurants work for their own – for officials, deputies, for those in power, so to speak.” According to him, “everything works according to the thieves and acquaintance in Moscow.” The player’s indignation provoked that for the authorities “there is no coronavirus”, and ordinary people “are forced to stay at home, while there is absolutely no help from the state”.
“And so we are all under the hood. Just try not to pay the penalty or not pay any tax on time – you immediately have bank accounts closed or they can simply automatically withdraw without your knowledge (money .— “B”) I think so – but it is – they want to keep everyone under a cap, otherwise they would not accept these absurd laws. In principle, everything goes to vaccination, to chipization. There is a lot of evidence to this that they do not care about the people. We need as slaves, manpower Just try not to pay. As in the days of serfdom – you have no rights and freedoms. You are a slave, ”the goalkeeper said in an interview.

In a statement, “Krylyaev Sovetov” it is said that the athlete’s opinion is his personal point of view, which “diverges from the club’s position.” “Having given an interview without prior approval from the club, he violated the terms of the contract, causing damage to the interests of the team. A football player will be punished according to the club regulation on disciplinary sanctions, ”the FC said.
Deputy Igor Lebedev said that he “did not find” in Frolov’s interview “nothing special, because of which such a noise could flare up.” In his opinion, the football player expressed “what people talk about in the kitchen.” “Punishing for this is wrong, because Eugene’s personal position has the right to be. In my opinion, instead of punishing him, you need to listen and change something. They punish us in our country for violating the criminal, administrative code. Did he break something? Did he insult someone, slander him? No. Frolov expressed his point of view. And we, as deputies, are obliged to listen to her, ”said a member of the Liberal Democratic Party, quoted by Championship.com.
Recall that in Moscow and most regions of Russia there is a self-isolation regime. You can leave the house to reach the nearest store or pharmacy, seek medical help, take out the trash, walk with your pet and get to the place of work. For violation of the regime fines are provided (4 thousand rubles, repeated – 5 thousand rubles). Since April 15, a permit system has also begun to operate in the capital and the Moscow Region, which must be obtained for transportation. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin proposed to extend the system to other regions.
