In August 2011, Dmitry Bykov, along with other journalists and politicians, participated in the creation of the public movement "Vote Against All!", Which called for boycotting the upcoming elections to the State Duma as dishonest. Bykov proposed to make the emblem of the invented character - the pig Nakh-Nakh, whose name soon became used as the name of the movement itself.

December 10, 2011 - took part and spoke at a protest rally on Bolotnaya Square against the falsification of the results of the elections to the State Duma of the sixth convocation. I joined the organizing committee of the following demonstrations. His activity was motivated by the fact that "such a feeling of power and such an atmosphere in the country" has bothered. On the "direct line" of Vladimir Putin, remembered by the audience a replica of the bandergists, responded with satirical poems "The Fresh Law of the Jungle", sounded on December 19 on the air of the radio station Ekho Moskvy.

In October of that year he joined the Coordinating Council of the Russian Opposition, taking second place in the number of votes cast for him (Aleksey Navalny received the most votes. The Coordinating Council declared its main task to be the development and promulgation of a detailed plan for political reforms.

2014: On joining the Crimea and the situation in Ukraine, he expressed himself as follows: "Economically, it (Crimea) is rather unprofitable for Russia, politically - doubtful, because it increased isolation and quarreled with Ukraine definitively." And further: "If on the same Maidan many swore in love for Russia and hatred only for certain of its representatives, today the idea of ​​the slavish nature of Russia and its complete incorrigibility is owned in Ukraine by almost all minds - thanks to it should not be the Ukrainian authorities ... the consequences of the current confrontation will have to be deconstructed for decades, if not centuries. "The geopolitics that so quarrel with their closest neighbor, and in the future with the whole world, are good."

"Donetsk is a Russian Israel, where a passionate minority is trying to restore the Russia that exists in the imagination of representatives of this minority," so Dmitry Bykov commented on the situation in Novorossia on the "Echo of Moscow".

Dmitry Bykov described the "parade" of prisoners on the streets of Donetsk as follows: "The march of the captured Germans in the center of Moscow is the foreknowledge of victory in the most terrible of wars over the most terrible enemy." The parade of captured Ukrainians in Donetsk is a mockery of the prisoners , and the matter is not only that the Geneva Convention is being violated in this way.The essence of what is happening is that ideologists and commanders of the two republics generally like to shoot (referring to Stalin's orders) and publicly humiliate: in this case and the parade on the occasion of Ukraine's Independence Day, when hundreds of captives were hooting around the city under the hoot, became the best illustration of this practice.It should be reminded that analogies with the great events of history do not pass freely, and those who unleashed and supports this war, the same epoch-making shame, the same large-scale catastrophe as the aggressors overtook 70 years ago, awaits. " ("The Interlocutor" .28.08.2014).

In his views, Dmitry Bykov is a convinced anti-Stalinist. In his opinion, "Stalin accepted Russia as a country with the highest intellectual potential, with the best culture in the world, with the fantastic enthusiasm of the masses ... Stalin 30 years turned Russia into the most boring and vilest country in the world - a country in which a five-year military pause, with all the nightmares of war, was perceived as a breath of fresh air. "

According to Bykov, Russia is a special country in which even "physical laws act very selectively," but "Russia is cracked, and therefore totalitarianism is impossible in it," he believes that "the Russian people willingly follow any leader, if only not to think himself. "In his opinion," Russian reality is disgusting, making the revolution very desirable and not so difficult, but it will lead to nothing, except the sea of ​​blood and several decades of intellectual mega-firing. "

Attitude to the liberal movement underwent a series of perturbations in Bykov. From statements after the tragedy of Nord-Ost, 2002: "Liberalism today is the exact, cowardly and mean choice of a weakling: he knows where the power is, and is opposed to this force," to the radically opposite positions in the 2010s.

In July 2015, Bykov made a column in the publication "Interlocutor", which asked the question "Can an honest man love his homeland?". In the opinion of the publicist - of course not. Further, the author reflects on the example of the closure of the "Dynasty" fund that humanity becomes an anti-Russian phenomenon in our country. "Because any humanitarian, humanistic and other civilizational activity is by definition anti-Russian."

Scandals, rumors

The ill-wishers say that Dmitry Bykov is a writer, journalist, poet, public figure, a man with an active civic position, active exactly as much as he is paid for this very position.

Once, an unknown young man called Bykov and, introducing himself as an assistant to businessman Sergei Solovyov, asked to perform on a creative evening in the small provincial town of Nizhnyaya Tura in the Sverdlovsk region. Allegedly, his head is going to take part in the elections to the city Duma of the city of Kachkanar, which is forty kilometers from Nizhnyaya Tura, and he really wants to present to residents of two cities a gift to the Day of the Defender of the Fatherland - a charitable evening of Dmitry Bykov, a remarkable writer, publicist and poet.

Without going deep into who and why he calls, Bykov agreed. A few days later Bykov's assistant - Tatyana announced the amount of the required fee - a two-hour speech by the poet-citizen was estimated at half a million rubles. In addition, the terms of the meeting were agreed: the plane and cars exclusively business class, the hotel suite, sandwiches and mineral water behind the stage, so that the artist could refresh during the intermission, and obligatory VIP reception in the restaurant after the performance.

By agreement, Bykov was obliged to publicly thank Solovyov for the invitation to the Lower Tour and support the candidate. What Bykov did. Thus, during the performance of the Moscow guest, the audience for the first time was surprised to learn about the new progressive candidate for the deputies of the city Duma, Sergei Solovyov. The next day, Dmitry Lvovich did not refuse to take as a sign of deep gratitude a little more money, in addition to the already paid.

So it turns out that all the beautiful words about an active civic position and high moral standards of a fighter for justice are perfectly measured in monetary terms, - some media report. Bykov Dmitry Lvovich

In October 2016, Bykov interviewed Andrei Konchalovsky, in which the director ridiculed the opposition poet:

Konchalovsky - ... You, of course, give great upheavals, because you're fat, like Hitchcock, and accordingly you like thrillers ... Bykov - I'm not very fat. Konchalovsky - You're fat. Bulls - Fellini was also fat. Konchalovsky - But not like you. I have seen him more than once. He was a tight guy, but only.
