In the spring of 2017, the Investigative Committee conducted the first searches as part of the criminal case, which everyone now knows as the Serebrennikov case, the Seventh Studio case, or the Platform case. Six people, including a world-famous director, are accused of stealing from the state more than one hundred million rubles allocated for staging performances. And they can go to jail for 10 years for that. Journalists Katerina Gordeeva and Roman Super tried to figure out what the essence of this case is. We talked to people who know what theater is, including in terms of money. We studied financial documents. Communicated with those with whom no one had ever been able to before. They figured out why the applause of the audience and the compliments of the Ministry of Culture turned into arrests. And of course, they went to all the court sessions.
