Last spring, the maniac Viktor Mokhov was released from prison. Sobchak decided to make a film about him and paid Mokhov 50 thousand rubles for an interview. In addition, the TV personality bought him furniture for a total of 25 thousand rubles.
This phrase angered many Russians. Accusations fell on Sobchak that she was providing a tribune to the rapist. Some of the viewers considered that Mokhov was being overly heroized in the film, and called it unethical.
