The editor-in-chief of "Jellyfish" has refused to admit guilt in sexual harassments


The former editor-in-chief of "Jellyfish" Ivan Kolpakov has commented on resignation in connection with charge of a harassment. He has written to Facebook that he doesn't see other exit and leaves a post, "because it will be so better for "Jellyfish"". "Nevertheless I will dare to tell how I feel it. I leave because it is painful to me to see how you destroy what I built. Because injustice is opposite to me. Because not everything that has broken, needs to be repaired" — the journalist has said. He has refused to admit charges of a harassment and sexual harassments, having noted that it has appeared in a situation, "when it is impossible and it is senseless to protect itself". Kolpakov will continue to participate in work of "Jellyfish", but not as the head. "This stage in my life has ended" — the former editor-in-chief noted. Duties of the head of edition will be fulfilled by Tatyana Yershova who held a post of the operating editor of the edition earlier.

The husband of the victim has told about the incident on an editorial board. After that Kolpakov has made the decision to be discharged of the management of the edition for two weeks, before the end of trial. At the beginning of November the board of directors of Meduzy has returned Kolpakov to management of edition, having motivated the decision with the fact that the unseemly behavior of the editor-in-chief had no system character, so, there was enough punishment in the form of discharge. At the same time it became known that the victim's husband who has said that the edition will leave if Kolpakov remains the editor-in-chief, has left at own will. After that a part of journalistic community has criticized Meduzy, having reproached with double standards. Kolpakov directed the editorial office "Meduzy" since the beginning of 2016.
