Tajiks Accuse Comedy Show of “Moral Genocide”

Karomat Sharipov, the leader of Russia-based movement “Tajik Labor Migrants,” accused popular comedy show Our Russia of the “moral genocide of the Tajik nation” and demanded an apology from the producers to the people of Tajikistan. The show depicts construction guest workers Rovshan and Jimshud, presumably Tajiks, as comic characters. The movement asked the General Prosecutor's Office and the mass media supervision agency to ban the show. The producers responded that Rovshan and Jimshud are nationals of a fictitious country.
