The lawyer of the rapper Morgenstern, Sergei Zhorin on Tuesday, November 23, said that he was afraid of pressure from law enforcement officers on his client after the chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia (TFR) Alexander Bastrykin accused the musician of drug dealing on social networks.
“What we think, how we will react, is of secondary importance here – it is more important how Bastrykin’s subordinates will react to it. No matter how they take it as a call to action. Obviously, Morgenstern does not sell drugs – this is not his field of activity. But what Bastrykin said is puzzling. Maybe he was misinformed, “- leads Lenta.ru Zhorin’s words.
The head of the TFR accused Morgenstern of drug dealing earlier that day. He added that the rapper involves a huge number of young people in his sphere of communication.
Earlier, on November 19, it was reported that the Investigative Committee began checking Morgenstern’s videos. The investigation believes that the artist’s work promotes drug use and deviant behavior.
Morgenstern is currently undergoing four checks. They relate to the rapper’s TikTok content as well as his YouTube videos. They check the materials because of the music video of the artist for the song Rablo.
Prior to that, in mid-April, an administrative case was initiated against Morgenstern for drug propaganda. It was noted that the reason for this was the music videos of the artist “Rose Wine – 2” and Family. After that, on June 3, the court fined the artist 100 thousand rubles for the propaganda of narcotic substances.
