Soloist of the punk band "Naiv" Alexander "Chacha" Ivanov spoke from the stage about the schoolgirl Masha Moskaleva, whose family the authorities began to persecute after she drew an anti-war picture at school. Mediazona published a video sent by a reader, in which you can also hear the audience chanting “X*th war” in response to the musician’s words.
Ivanov took the stage in a T-shirt with the inscription "Masha Moskaleva" during a concert, which took place on April 15 in the Moscow club "1930 Moscow" .
“I tried to drive this thing away from myself, I couldn’t. I don’t understand why, everything else turned out for some reason, but Masha Moskaleva’s case does not let go. <...> Friends, I want to ask you: google this case, find out what happened there, be horrified by what happened to Masha and her family for the drawing she drew at the art lesson.
In early April, it became known about the cancellation of Naiva concerts in Cherepovets and Yaroslavl. According to the organizers, Lyubov Surova, a member of the Yaroslavl State Duma from United Russia, wrote a denunciation of the musicians to the prosecutor's office. “Voters sent me a video with public anti-Russian and pro-Ukrainian statements by the head of this conditionally 'musical group' Alexander Ivanov. And I fully share their indignation, ”Surova wrote on her Telegram channel, calling the musician’s statements “an ideological sabotage.”
Masha Moskaleva, a sixth-grader, drew a poster in support of Ukraine in April 2022, after which the school principal called the police. Subsequently, the girl’s father, Alexei Moskalev, who raised his daughter alone, drew up a protocol on “discrediting” the army, and then a criminal case was opened for repeated “discrediting”. The reason was the comments in Odnoklassniki. At the end of March, the man was sentenced to two years in prison, but he escaped from house arrest on the eve of the verdict. Two days later, Moskalev was detained in Minsk.
Masha was sent to a shelter in early March. Shortly after the verdict was passed, the girl was handed over to her mother.
