Some Russian lawmakers are supporting a campaign against rock musician Andrei Makarevich, threatening to strip him of state awards after he performed for Internally Displaced Persons in the eastern Ukraine last week.

Makarevich, founder of rock group Mashina Vremeni, or "Time Machine," was invited by a pro-Kyiv Ukrainian volunteer foundation to tour eastern Ukrainian cities ravaged during the conflict between separatist insurgents and the government forces.

He gave a charity concert on August 12 to IDP children in Donetsk Oblast's war-stricken town of Svyatogorsk. Makarevich posted a photograph on his Facebook page of a Svyatogorsk hall full of excited children standing and clapping.

"Andrei Makarevich has been partnering with fascists for a long time," lawmaker Yevgeny Fyodorov of the ruling United Russia party told the pro-Kremlin daily "Izvestia" on August 18. "He made this choice a fairly long time ago, back when he sided with the Russian Federation's enemies."

Fyodorov wants to strip Makarevich of his multiple state honors including the Order "For Merit to the Fatherland," Russia's highest civilian state award. The lawmaker has also been lobbying for legislation that would automatically remove such awards from those who make "anti-Russian" statements.

It is unclear why the lawmakers were angered by Makarevich's performing in front of IDPs, whom Moscow says are in need of aid.

But Makarevich has been openly critical of Kremlin policy on Ukraine.

In March, after Russia's annexation of Crimea he wrote on his Facebook page: "If we're doing everything correctly, then why is the whole world against us?… Is it because we are the only ones in the right and the whole world is sh*t?"

Speaking on the Ekho Moskvy radio station on August 18, Makarevich did not rule out suing Fyodorov for libel. "If these comrades in question continue to call me a fascist, then it seems I'll have to file a suit against them for damages to honor and dignity," he said.

Ella Pamfilova, Russia's Human Rights Ombudsman, criticized the proposal to strip Makarevich of his state awards.

"I'm against the use of state mechanisms in the fight against people who think differently," she told the Interfax news agency.

Yes, just as in Nazi Germany during the 30's, any decent Russians will soon have to leave for disobeying the orders of Dwarf Fuhrer Putin.

Sad how LOW Russia has sunk.

Everyone on earth knows who the REAL FASCISTS ARE, and that is the Russian people who follow the Fuhrer Adolf Putin.

Decent, truthful Russian patriots can immigrate to Western democracies, and return after the disastrous and humiliating end of the Fascist Putin regime that surely awaits........

The real Fascists are in Canada who for for a few centuries didn't even allow Native Canadians any sits in the parliament. And the current 2.3% they have doesn't even even match their 3.8% of Canada's population. Given that all the land with all of its resources belongs to them - their representation should be at least 10-20%, but of course the NAZI Canada will never allow it!:)

And Stephen Harper who made a statement that Quebec is a country within Canada - that dumb ass f*cking Nazi is openly declaring he's not willing to recognize Quebecois identity as Canadians even though most of the French Canadians arrived in Canada at least 100 years before the "Anglo" settlers did including to parts of modern Ontario. All this is because Canada is being run a bunch of hillbilly Anglo-Saxon Nazi jerks like Harper and the bunch of paid idiots who persistently post on this forum their retarded canned responses cooked up for them by Harper himself having too much free time on his hands being the prime Minister of Canada and jerking off to the the pictures of Murdered Palestinian and Ukrainian children that he googles on Internet.
