The rappers Oxxxymiron and Face, who positioned themselves as being apolitical, and the latter also strongly criticised the blogger Aleksey Navalny, in the days before the authorised rally-concert sharply changed their views and began to support the so-called “opposition”.
The information that the stars received good money for their performance on August 10th on Sakharov Avenue start to be gradually confirmed. Thus, on the Telegram channel “Boilernaya” there is information about the amounts that stars are ready to accept to change their political “orientation”. According to the owner of the “event-agency for the letter M”, organisers of the rally-concert on August 10th hired a selection of artists for it.
The agency decided to disclose information about this after the organisers of the event, having received the list of stars ready to change their political “orientation” in exchange for money, stopped communicating. It turns out, that “oppositionists” decided to “economise” and directly contact artists.
According to the owner of the agency, therap performer Face cost the so-called “opposition” 10 million rubles, noted “Nation News”. It was planned that the event-agency will receive 15% of the amount of the contract, as well as those who actively called on social networks to come to the rally-concert. These are the groups “Nogu svelo” and “Bravo”.
It is noteworthy that the involvement of show business stars was carried out by the publisher of the Internet media “Mediazona” Petr Verzilov, who probably came up with the idea to leave the event-agency in the lurch. It should be noted that Verzilov and the so-called “Anti-Corruption Fund” are the real organisers of the concert rally, and Morev, Azar, and Shenderovich were involved only because of their deputy status. This is also confirmed by the fact that correspondents of well-known opposition media, except representatives of “FBK” and “Mediazona” were not allowed to go on stage.
Recall that on August 10th on Sakharov Avenue there was a rally-concert, the participants of which totalled only 20,000 people, although the organisers declared 100,000. The stars at the public event were “Face”, “IC3PEAK”, and “Krovostok.” It was for the sake of a free concert that most teenagers and schoolchildren came to Sakharov Avenue. Also the journalist Yury Dud attended the rally-concert, but was quickly disappointed and called what happened “lame”.
