The film by Alexei Uchitel "Matilda", which turned out to be in the center of a large-scale scandal, received a rolling certificate from the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
The picture of a famous Russian director was given the category of “16+”. At the same time, the ministry stressed that the subjects of the Russian Federation are free to prohibit the rental of the film at their discretion. After the announcement of this decision, Natalya Poklonskaya, one of the most influential women politicians of the 21st century, ardently opposed the film “Matilda”, accused the Ministry of Culture of extremism. Recall, the deputy has long opposed the "Matilda", considering the film about Nicholas II blasphemous and offensive to believers.
