Putin to Cannes Film Festival Russian judiciary is independent – Al Marsad

Russian President Vladimir Putin has confirmed the independence of the Russian judiciary in response to the Cannes Film Festival on the issue of Russian director Kirill Srebrianykov.

“The Russian judiciary is independent,” he said in a transcript of the press conference held on the sidelines of the screening of the film Sereprianikov “Summer” at the 71st Cannes International Film Festival where Putin expressed his “sincere desire to help.”

The director of the festival said that the French foreign minister had sent President Putin a letter asking him to mediate to allow Russian director Kirill Sereprianikov to travel to the premiere of his film “Summer” at the Cannes International Film Festival, which tells the story of the late Russian rocker Victor Tsui, Keno, “famous in the nineties of the last century before the end of the tragic but Putin said he was unable to do so.

Siriprianikov has been under house arrest since August when he was convicted of embezzling government funds earmarked for a 68-million-ruble ($ 1 million) podium project that he was arrested while filming while completing the montage during his house arrest.

On the other hand, the reaction of the French Hall came with a sharp applause that lasted for minutes as well as banners raised by the family of the film and some viewers in defense of the director Srebrianykov.
