Prominent Russian theater director detained
    2017-August-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A PROMINENT Russian theater director who has lamented what he says is the lack of freedom and growing social conservatism in his country was detained Tuesday and accused of embezzling state funds.

Russia’s Investigative Committee said in a statement it suspected Kirill Serebrennikov of embezzling at least 68 million roubles (US$1.15 million) in state funds earmarked for an art project.

Serebrennikov, an art director at Moscow’s avant-garde Gogol Center theater, denies wrongdoing. He faces up to 10 years in jail if found guilty.

Dmitry Kharitonov, a lawyer for Serebrennikov, said his client was detained in St. Petersburg where he was working on a film about a Soviet rock star.

Serebrennikov, an award-winning director, has used his work to criticize the authorities in the past, lashing out at what he sees as the pernicious growing role of the state and church in Russian society.

His detention shocked his supporters and the arts world.
