General Producer RTVI fell short of the community’s expectations.
Sergei Shnurov, known as the leader of the Leningrad group, and since this year as a journalist and general producer of the RTVI TV channel, was deprived of the status of a saint of the Russian Pastafarian Church. The community formed in 2013 is known as the Church of the Flying Macaroni Monster. The corresponding statement appeared on the organization’s website on December 25.
“On December 25, 2020, during Holy Friday at the Nizhny Novgorod KhrallMM, by the church jury (8 votes to 1) Sergey Shnurov was deprived of his saint status. The certificate has been canceled. We will continue to honor Sergei as a FORMER saint … ”- says the website of the Pastafarian Church. It should be noted that the founder of Playboy Hugh Hefner, one of the founders of the VKontakte social network and Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov, popularizer of science and author of “A Brief History of Time” are also registered in the holy organizations that refused Shnurov’s status. Stephen Hawking and even Nadezhda Zhukova, which became famous all over the world as a “nurse in a bathing suit”.
Shnurov, we add, was canonized in 2017 on the basis of the decision of the Sacred Colander for a special love for pasta and the service of absurdity. Sergei recorded the song “Doshirak” and once admitted that he would have dreamed of opening his own “preshirak”. In February 2020, it was noted by representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, the musician, having gone into big politics, continued to multiply the absurd, but he no longer showed his love for pasta. After the excommunication of the “holiness” rocker, members of the community were advised not to listen to and perform the songs of “Leningrad”.

And in the summer of 2020, he was appointed general producer of the international Russian-language TV channel RTVI.

Shnurov never ceases to maintain the reputation of a critic, reacting to the statements of numerous colleagues in show business.
