PR-director of the Ukrainian singer Jamala and The Maneken rock band Denis Kozlowski posted a curious content on his Facebook page.

He recently visited the offices of the British newspapers Independent, Daily Mail and Evening Standard, owned for more than six years by the Russian disgraced oligarch Alexander Lebedev, who also owns a 14% stake in Russian Novaya Gazeta.

And saw on the walls inside the prestigious London office, the photos the Russian kingpins’ tombstones killed or deceased in the freewheeling 90s.

According to the Ukrainian musicians’ PR-manager, the photos are on the walls of the Northcliffe House office for a decorative function. For employees of the newspapers, according to him, what was depicted on the pictures remained a mystery before Kozlovsky did not explained it to them.

As for the images, they are quite well known. In 2013, about the exhibition in the gallery of Charles Saatchi London many Western and Russian press wrote. The information about it was also published on the website of the Crime Russia.

The authorship of these works belongs to the Ural photo-artist Denis Tarasov, who made this series, according to him, by order of Charles Saatchi gallery, which itself contacted him with the offer. The pictures were made in Yekaterinburg and Dnepropetrovsk.

Perhaps, they later were acquired by Alexander Lebedev from the gallery, suggested the commentators reasonably on Kozlowsky’s FB page.
