Pushkin’s fairy tale was uncensored
The clergy saw in his work «the Tale about priest and his worker Balde» disrespect to the Church. It was therefore decided to amend the text of the amendment. Now well-known tale is not about the priest and the merchant. The change is the Minister of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Almavir.
The Russian Orthodox Church endorsed the censorship of children’s tales. Now on the cover is the name «the Tale of the merchant Mutt and his worker Balde».
The representative of the Church said that updated the tale can be purchased at the temples. Also, this version of the book will give children in Sunday schools.
Lovers of Pushkin left wondering what other classic works will be censored.
