“Capitalist Orgy”

Russky PionerThe Leningrad military district prosecutor has opened an investigation into a banquet held aboard the famed cruiser Avrora during the St Petersburg Economic Forum by Russian multi-billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov’s Russian Pioneer magazine.

The banquet took place on board the museum ship Avrora on the night of June 5 to 6. The party was held to celebrate the first birthday of Russky Pioner (Russian Pioneer) magazine. A number of the Economic Forum’s VIP guests, including Prokhorov himself, were present at the banquet. Representatives of the St Petersburg authorities, including City Governor Valentina Matviyenko, also attended the event.

During the party, the ship was converted into an all-singing, all-dancing party venue. Huge speakers were installed on the upper deck, while on the lower deck, waiters dressed in Russian naval shirts served the guests with wine and canapes, Fontanka reported.

Popular rock singer Sergei Shnurov and his musicians performed explicit songs for the guests from a stage erected on a barge berthed alongside the Avrora, and a ballerina performed the famous Dying Swan dance on the windy deck. At the end of the party, some of the banquet’s guests even jumped into the cold waters of the Neva River to have a swim, Russian Pioneer magazine’s own video showed.
