Roskomnadzor intends to analyze the recording of the TV broadcast of the Muz-TV award for the promotion of homosexuality among minors, the ministry’s press service reported. RKN noted that the TV channel did not mark the broadcast with the “18+” sign. In addition, the broadcast was conducted during the day, and materials demonstrating unconventional relationships can only be broadcast after 23:00.
“Roskomnadzor will analyze the recordings of the Muz-TV channel broadcasting the award for violations of the current legislation of the Russian Federation, including in the field of protecting children from information that is harmful to their health and development. If violations are revealed by Roskomnadzor, appropriate response measures will be taken, “RIA Novosti quotes a message from the press service of Roskomnadzor.
The agency also admits that it is necessary to check not only the broadcast of the award, but also the event itself. “On the posters of the award, the organizers indicated the sign of information products“ 6+ ”. In this case, we believe that it is necessary to check not only the broadcast of the award, but also the event itself for compliance with the norms of the current legislation of the Russian Federation. However, this kind of state control is not within the authority of Roskomnadzor, ”the statement says.
The Muz-TV award was held on June 4 at the Megasport Sports Palace. Artist Philip Kirkorov arrived at the event in a white limousine together with blogger David Manukyan, while they were dressed in white and black tuxedos.

Blogger Danya Milokhin arrived at the ceremony in a suit that consisted of half black tailcoat, half dress. Blogger Igor Sinyak appeared in a woman’s dress.
