Posner denied the rumor about the "promotion" of the scandal around Ephraim

Journalist and TV presenter Vladimir Pozner in an interview with the portal "Business Online" commented on the fatal accident with the actor Mikhail Yefremov, stressing that this story attracted attention because her acting is a famous person.

The journalist believes that such topics cause wild interest and attract more viewers than, for example, the discussion of economic issues.

The broadcaster said that he was sorry for who died in the accident Sergey Zakharov and his family.

Posner is hopeful that the artist will be given the same punishment as a completely unknown person for the same offense.

Last Monday Efremov in a jeep drove into oncoming traffic on Smolensk square and crashed into a van Lada. The accident killed 57-year-old driver Sergey Zakharov. The expertise found in the blood of Ephraim traces of alcohol and drugs. He faces up to 12 years of imprisonment.
