MOSCOW, November 13. Re-publication in the French magazine Charlie Hebdo of caricatures on the Russian plane disaster in Egypt in the absence of reaction of officials spoke about the blurring of the lines between good and evil in French society. It was declared to journalists by the first Deputy of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Franz Klintsevich.
The behavior of the magazine and the French authorities reflects a Western understanding of freedom of speech, which is not exhibited “absolutely no moral or ethical restrictions,” said the MP.
“But let them live as they want. In the end, the blurring of the lines between good and evil is not a problem of ours, and French society, which sooner or later will explode it from within,” said the Klintsevich.
According to the Senator, now “makes no sense to say some condemning words” in the journal address. “All I had to say, said. And we were heard. Not only heard, but answered another caricature in approving silence of officials”, – said the Klintsevich.
Thursday, the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in the latest issue has posted a new cartoon on the accident of the Russian liner A321 in Egypt, which killed 224 people. This time the picture published on the cover of the publication and is obscene.
Last week the magazine published two cartoons on the subject of the Holocaust. The publication caused a sharp protest from Russia.
Reacting to the arisen dispute, the French foreign Ministry said that the Republic’s leadership has no relation to the activities of the newspaper, where staff is free to Express their own opinion.
