Nikita Dzhigurda said that the artist had withdrawn into himself.
Mikhail Efremov this summer became the culprit of a terrible accident in the center of Moscow. The artist, intoxicated, got behind the wheel, drove into the oncoming lane and rammed another car. The driver of the second car died. The court sentenced the actor to 7.5 years in prison. After the decision on the case, Mikhail Olegovich, we spent some time in a pre-trial detention center. It was believed that it was there that he would wait for an appeal against the verdict. However, at the end of November this year, the artist was transferred to IK-4 in Alekseevka. Recently, journalists managed to find out how an artist lives outside his freedom.
It is reported that Mikhail Efremov is tired of publicity: the actor asks his lawyers, close friends and even the leadership of the colony not to give any information about him. Nevertheless, journalists managed to see the artist through the fence that encloses the colony in the village of Alekseevka, Belgorod Region. It turned out that he had already started working duties. Earlier it was reported that in prison, Mikhail Olegovich decided to master the sewing business.
However, according to Nikita Dzhigurda, who has repeatedly spoken out about the Efremov case, the artist is not forced to work in the zone: “Labor duties are only at his personal request.” Dzhigurda noted that now Efremov is going through hard times: “My sources in the colony say that he is in shock, he talks to few people, all in himself. The person is under stress, do you understand? Moreover, the lawyers promised Misha first a suspended sentence, then – stay in a Moscow pre-trial detention center for the entire period of imprisonment. Everything turned out to be a lie. Therefore, Efremov is in a dejected state. There are about 100 people in the detachment, the conditions are Spartan – a barrack. He is not offended, not forced to work, treated with respect. If the people I contacted there asked me to protect Misha. Because, unfortunately, he was not a warrior in this situation. But he is a brilliant artist. “
In addition, Dzhigurda assures that the family of Mikhail Efremov is being threatened. “I know why this happened. According to my information, both he and Sofya Kruglikova receive threats. It is precisely because of the threats associated with the lives of children that Mikhail Olegovich makes illogical steps, takes the blame upon himself and refuses our expertise, which can really save him. Alas, the family is being blackmailed. Goal? To squeeze from him all the money and important documents related to the Sovremennik Theater. This is a kind of raider takeover “, – Dzhigurda said in an interview with KP.
It is worth noting that Mikhail Efremov paid the relatives of the deceased material compensation in the amount of three million rubles. In addition, the actor paid for the funeral of the deceased, transferring about one hundred thousand rubles to his relatives. To the eldest son of the deceased Vitaly Zakharov Efremov paid a million rubles, even in excess of the amount that the court ordered him to pay.
While already in the colony, Efremov also sent a letter of apology to the widow of the deceased. The actor repented of his deed, and also asked forgiveness of the victims and for the choice of lawyer Elman Pashayev, who repeatedly spoke about the family of the deceased. The artist also noted that he had tried to write a letter of apology earlier, but could not find the words.
