Sexologist Kerim Kostoev on the air of NSN commented on the accusations of harassment against the Russian journalist. Journalist and TV presenter Pavel Lobkov on his Facebook page responded to accusations of harassment of colleagues. He stated that he had not noticed how the time had come for a new ethic, and continued to make risky jokes and hug colleagues. In his defense, he noted that he never resorted to moral pressure, violence or blackmail. Sexologist Kerim Kostoev on the air of NSN expressed the opinion that modern society reacts very sharply to contacts of people at work. According to him, this leads to the fact that colleagues begin to be afraid to communicate with each other, so as not to be accused of harassment. Rectors of Moscow Architectural Institute and Baumanka spoke about the situation with harassment in their universities “The issue of relations with colleagues is very controversial. To be frank, the world has recently gone too far on all these harassment and so on. For example, I believe that you can support a colleague by touching her back with your hand, there is absolutely nothing reprehensible, sexy, and so on. There is no background to this. It `s naturally. Or, during fun and laughter, put your hand on a girl's hand. Five or seven years ago, I would not even have thought about the fact that this could harm me as a man. Now, against the background of what is happening in the world, I don't even stand a meter from my female colleague, but stay away from her. Because who knows what a modern woman has on her mind at work now? In America, now men, out of harm's way, no longer help women, for example, carry a pack of paper to the printer so that they are not accused of harassment. There should be common sense and adequacy in everything,”he summed up. As specified, the employee of the publication "MBH Media" Alexander Skrylnikov accused Lobkov of harassment. According to him, this happened when he was an intern at the editorial office of the Dozhd TV channel. Lobkov touched him and tried to convince Skrylnikov of his heterosexual orientation, the man said.
