The Shigir idol cannot have a harmful effect on the fate of the Sverdlovsk region, and the Wagner PMC is not the organization that should fight paranormal phenomena, said URA.ru well-known intellectual and State Duma deputy Anatoly Wasserman, reacting to the statement of the Orthodox activist Oksana Ivanova, who asked Yevgeny Prigozhin to stop the growth of the idol’s influence in the region.
“I am an atheist, and, from my point of view, no supernatural entity is in principle impossible, and therefore cannot somehow influence our natural life. There is no way to suspect even an idol, even an icon in a church, of anything We get all the trouble either from completely soulless forces of nature, or from our own mistakes, “ — Wasserman emphasized. Moreover, with Ivanova they are in the same party – “A Just Russia – For Truth.”
Anatoly noted that using the Wagner PMC to solve such problems is pointless, even if supernatural forces really exist, but added that Prigozhin also has an information holding at his disposal, which can really be useful in such a situation.
