And all halls in the main Museum – eight”, the message reads “Yeltsin Center” in Facebook.
the report notes that Mikhalkov’s focusing all his attention on the eight-minute introductory film, “not noting, for example, other metaprogramming, which in different halls of the Museum 163″.
“to view all need eight and a half hours. That he wasn’t interested. Mikhalkov did not find time to read the documents, listen to testimonies of eyewitnesses, or at least to look carefully chronicled. Half of the time allotted for the Museum, he spent on the monologues designed for the accompanying camera. The scenario “visiting the Museum” turned out to be unsophisticated – the same “Besogon”, but in the interiors of the Museum of Yeltsin,” said a Museum staff.
representative of the “Yeltsin Centre” Elena Volkova has informed RIA “news” that, despite all this, the Museum is happy to visit Mikhalkov. “We are pleased that he visited (us). We welcome any visitors and biased, and unbiased. Well, to continue to participate in this debate makes no sense”, – said Volkov.
