(FRANCE24) — Russia’s interior ministry on Monday launched a criminal probe into flag desecration after a US rock musician stuffed a Russian flag down his trousers at a concert.

The band Bloodhound Gang scandalised Russia when a video was released showing its bassist Jared Hasselhoff stuffing the white-blue-and-red tricolour down his trousers and then throwing it into the crowd at a concert last week in Odessa, Ukraine.

The interior ministry said in a statement that it had opened a criminal case “after looking into actions that demonstrated disrespect to the Russian state flag by a musician from a foreign band.”
