Moscow, March 29, Interfax - President of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia Alexander Boroda expressed his indignation with new video by the Rammstein, where musicians wear prisoner uniform with loops around their necks.
"I believe it is unacceptable. In Russia every contract on public activity (whether it is a book, an article, a performance or a festival) includes a provision banning extremism," Boroda told Interfax.
He regrets that "to make loud glory people use such low methods," as everyone will now talk about this video because of the scandal it caused, not its artistic values.
According to the Jewish leader, the main task of the society is to demonstrate publicly its rejection and even disgust for such "creativity."
As was reported, on March 28 the Rammstein released a new single called Deutschland. Besides Nazi symbols, the video contains scenes of violence and epatage. According to former head of Central Council of Jews in Germany Charlotte Knobloch, "the Rammstein is misusing the suffering and murder of millions for entertainment purposes in a frivolous and repulsive way."
