Three-time Olympic champion and State Duma deputy Irina Rodnina stood up for rapper Morgenstern after he was criticized by mixed style fighters (MMA) Alexander Shlemenko and Khabib Nurmagomedov. She is quoted by “Sport-Express”.
According to Rodnina, it is wrong to raise the issue of banning Morgenstern's music, because there are people in Russia who listen to it. “To point at someone, you need to weigh your capabilities. We have so much negativity and deaths of MMA fighters, ”said the deputy.
