Recently it became known that Sergei Safronov was suspended from work in the "Battle of Psychics" project due to accusations of taking bribes. The TNT channel decided to fire the presenter so that the image of the show would not suffer.
The fact that the show "Battle of Psychics" uses dishonest methods of work, started talking two years ago after the author's film by Boris Sobolev "Going to Hell". However, this did not affect the popularity of the project, and the experts and editors accused of bribery continued to work on the show.
However, recently a participant in the show Alina Verdish published a scandalous video in which she presented evidence that Sergei Safronov provided information for those wishing to get to the finals. Such help from an illusionist was not cheap: for testing the "Screen" - 600 thousand rubles, for the "Trunk" - 900 thousand. The presenter estimated each subsequent stage at 200 thousand rubles and promised the participant that he would lead her to the very final. As evidence, she provided recordings of conversations and screenshots of correspondence with Sergei.
Due to the public's attention to this story and the loss of confidence in the illusionist, the TNT channel decided to remove him from filming "The Battle of Psychics". The channel's management assures that they did not know about such activities of Sergei, so it was decided to dismiss the illusionist. Sergei himself said that he would meet with a psychic in court to prove that he had been slandered.
