Pavlensky to Receive Asylum in Another EU Country if Stripped of Refuge in France – Lawyer


“Even if he is divested of his asylum in France, which I doubt, he could be given asylum in any EU country. He has always said that he is a man of the world and he does not care where to live,” Dinze said.

Last week, Pavlesnky released a video, allegedly shared by Griveaux with a young woman, depicting the candidate masturbating, which made him withdraw from the race.

Pavlesnky was later detained by the police, along with his female associate. The incident provoked an outrageous reaction among the country’s political class, with the disgraced candidate calling Pavlensky’s move a violation of privacy, and some French lawmakers demanding to withdraw his right to asylum.

He is currently facing up to two years in prison and a considerable fine for spreading sexual materials without an author’s consent.

Pavlensky claims he wanted to draw attention to Griveaux’s hypocrisy for running as a candidate supporting family values, while at the same time engaging in salacious behaviour. 

France granted Pavlensky political asylum in 2017.
