Veteran of Chechnya, drag queen Bomba Cybersisi was forced to apologize on video for singing the Russian anthem with an LGBT flag

Travesty show artist Sergey Nechaev (Bomba Cybersisi) was forced to apologize on video for singing the Russian anthem with an LGBT flag, It's My City reports .

The video of the apology was posted on VKontakte, in the group of the far-right movement Russia Conservative.

“I am grateful to the guys for convincingly conveying to me the understanding that such behavior is unacceptable,” Nechaev says in the video. At the same time, a person standing next to him is holding him by the shoulder.

Nechaev himself said that he was a veteran of Chechnya and sang the Russian anthem because he was a patriot.

Nechaev (pseudonym - Cybersis Bomba) received an earlier administrative protocol for performing the Russian anthem during the show. The performance took place in Ekaterinburg, at the Fame club on August 7, while Nechaev opened his mouth to the soundtrack and held the LGBT flag in his hands. The Ministry of Internal Affairs drew up a protocol under Article 17.10 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (“Violation of the use of state symbols of the Russian Federation”).

Under this article, he faces a fine of up to 3 thousand rubles. The head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Sverdlovsk Region, Valery Gorelykh, stating this, expressed regret that Bomba Cybersisi cannot be arrested for singing the anthem, since the article does not provide for this. “The Middle Urals is not America and not Europe with its pseudo-democracy, such “tricks” will never take root in our country,” he said.
