 pornography, as well as whether it violates the norm of the law banning promotion
 homosexuality among minors. Yes, the production has a sign "18+", but
 Media wrote that it looked and minors. Moreover, some viewers
 argue that minors are involved, and in the formulation. If this

 in relation to the secular, so their views, faith-based, including
 evaluation of works of art, believers can and must speak - of course, in
 peaceful and lawful forms "- said Father Vsevolod.
