But Mikhail's genius can be forgiven. Mikhail has the right to stumble, but in no case should he be imprisoned. He's a genius and that's it! He is a genius dad, a genius actor, and he is a genius person. Everything! That says it all. He can do anything. He is an absolutely free man and does whatever he wants! Bear, I love you, you are the best ",
