From 12 years to a suspended sentence: What punishment does Mikhail Efremov deserve


“Poet and Citizen” Mikhail Efremov, finally, played out. This is not about socialpolitical the position of the famous actor of theater and cinema, and about his well-known addiction, which this time cost a person's life. The driver of the car, which Efremov rammed drunk the day before, died from his injuries.


Although a talented actor could not be seen sober more often than a blooming fern, he does not consider himself an alcoholic. Two years ago, in an interview with Yuri Dudu, he explained:

Binge is when you drink in the morning so that you don’t feel bad and you feel better. And on the third day I can’t drink. In this sense, I am not an alcoholic, I am a cheerful drinker.

Drinking or not is everyone’s personal choice, but the problem is that, while intoxicated, he gets behind the wheel of a car, which is a source of increased danger. It is not a secret that many do this, hoping that everything will be just fine with them: they will not kill anyone, nor will they suffer.

Life and health of a very drunk actor was saved by his expensive SUV Jeep Grand Cherokee, racing at high speed. The domestic Lada car was less reliable in this regard, and the only victim of the accident was his driver Sergei Zakharov, who received numerous fractures and a closed head injury to the head, from which he later died in the hospital. Because of such a sad ending, Efremov’s chances to get off easily fell sharply.


By the way, this is not the first time that people die under the wheels of famous cars. For example, in 2001, TV presenter Leonid Yakubovich shot down a man to death. Witnesses claimed that he was in a state of extreme intoxication and literally threw himself under the car to Leonid Arkadievich, "stuck his head" in his Hyundai. The criminal case against the showman was closed for lack of corpus delicti.

In 2012, in the Kiev region, the famous Ukrainian music producer Konstantin Meladze also shot down a 30-year-old woman, the mother of two children, who was crossing the highway in the wrong place. Meladze was sober, but it was night time, he himself called the police to the scene. Subsequently, all charges were dropped from the producer, the relatives of the deceased did not show him claims. In this case, it was reported that he took on the maintenance of her children.


In the case of Efremov, everything is much worse. He was very drunk, which is recorded in the results of a medical examination. According to media reports, the alcohol content in his blood was about 2,1 ppm. Last year, liability under Article 264 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation incriminated to him was sharply strengthened. Until June 2019, the death of a victim as a result of a “drunk accident” included imprisonment of 2 to 7 years, now from 5 to 12. However, since such a crime was committed for the first time, most likely, there will be no talk of maximum sentences . Surely soon the actor’s colleagues in the workshop will join in with the slogan “Je suis Efremoff” and try to reduce the matter to reprisal for him for his political convictions.

Let's be honest: there is no politics here, this is ordinary everyday crime.


Of course, during the trial, the relatives of the deceased, who become victims, will play an important role. Probably, Mikhail Efremov will be able to "pay off", covering material and moral damage, as well as taking on the maintenance of children of Sergei Zakharov. Then, perhaps, the relatives of the deceased will not demand severe punishment for Efremov, and the actor will get off with a limited real, or even completely conditional term.

Such a scenario, however, seems unlikely, because the matter has gained wide resonance. The public on the Internet almost unanimously demanded the maximum punishment for the actor, given the aggravating circumstance of being drunk while driving. In addition, if Efremov succeeds in extricating himself from this story without a real time limit, it turns out that killing, albeit unintentional, can be paid off, albeit for a lot of money. After all, a person died and this must be answered, regardless of the measure of talent and the degree of contribution to the theater and cinema. Maybe then someone else will think about it before getting drunk behind the wheel.

    And why is he better than others, grimacing on stage - not tossing bags. If he refused to leave, why did not they send Rosguard to him?

      Probably because he let the police in and didn’t want to go to the interrogation, citing ill health, but did not refuse to open the door, and with a knife and dummy of an automatic machine did not throw at the police.

    Clowners in present-day Russia receive orders for certain services to the fatherland. Makarevich is not an example. Or Khazanov. Omazut and this. Well this is not a bottle in the store to steal. This individual is not drunk the first time? Caught? Now the liberal public will idolize him. He is the children. Forgive him, for he did not know what he was doing. At the same time, Sharia will be remembered. There is a rate of repayment for the murder, with the consent of the relatives of the murdered.

      And where does the liberal public? Yes, in Russia there are a lot of such accidents, where the impudently far from liberal society was justified. Ready to remember everything for the last ten years? Weak?

    Yes, with a knife and a fake machine gun at the police did not throw.

    He is already a killer, if that.

    This uncle to sit. Re-educated. Compensate. Pray. And ask the murdered forgiveness. And sit again. Anyone drunk driving is a potential and intentional killer. What they all saw. Intentional killing. Take a look at the video. What else is there to say? About the fact that he was drunk? And deliberately put behind the wheel? am Well, imagine that a car crashes into your family. What questions are there?

      Everyone who gets drunk behind the wheel automatically becomes criminals. And some are killers.

    It is difficult to answer, so to speak, this question. Here a lot will depend on the wife, I will say so. But this is money, and how then to live with it. But this is a personal matter of his wife.
    And it is necessary to plant it and at least for five years. And then the rich are used to the fact that everything and everything can be bought, even human life. For me personally it’s wildness when a person’s life is measured by paper!

      And what does the wife of the murdered? And even his children? And grandchildren, if any. There is the fact of a crime. For which this citizen must answer before the law. And moral and financial compensation is a secondary issue. And of course, it should affect the term received on the deed of punishment.

    I don’t argue with you about the punishment, especially since there was information that, in connection with the tightening of the law for this crime, it would not work out to agree between the parties even if they wanted to!

    Must answer to the maximum. Considering that this bastard has been behaving like a gangster for a long time, given that our LTPs are closed, this period will be enough for reliable treatment for alcoholism, and to straighten the psyche towards respect for others.
    Another similar lesson would be. In general, you need to tackle such Baghdasarians and start not to educate them on the streets, catching up and taking risks, but to shoot for disobedience to the police.
    The first ten demonstratively punished in this way will make all this abomination law-abiding.

    You need to remember the words of the classic -

    You may not be a poet, but you must be a citizen.
  10. In LTP for 6 years!
