Komsomolskaya Pravda published the rules for living in the eco-settlement (it was not possible to find them in the public domain, their authenticity has not been confirmed). They say that representatives of non-traditional sexual orientation are not allowed in the village. Residents must adhere to the dress code: men are required to wear clothes that cover the torso, and women – “opaque and not tight clothes below the knee length” without a neckline. It is forbidden to smoke, drink alcohol, use drugs, swear at the territory of the settlement, raise pigs. The media noted that candidates wishing to buy a plot in the settlement would be approved by the supervisory board.

“Komsomolskaya Pravda” in an article dedicated to the future village, talked about terrorists and radical Islamists. The TV channel “Tsargrad”, in turn, called Aminovka “the business scam of the century” and compared the settlement with a sect.

After media attention to Aminovka, the press secretary of the Spiritual Directorate of Muslims of the Moscow Region Stanislav Tokarev said that he was sympathetic to the idea of ​​creating such a settlement. “In such places, not only like-minded people gather, but fellow believers. This helps to reduce the impact of some external negative factors that do not coincide with the institutions of Islam, ”he said.

Amina Shabanova herself, commenting on media reports, said that she was “surprised not even by flashy headlines, but by how people inattentively read or highlight accents.” “In our settlement, plots are bought by Orthodox families too. And also the Muslim intelligentsia: candidates of sciences, professors, scientists, government officials, wonderful and wonderful people! ” She said. Ruslan Kurbanov, a journalist and political scientist, who is going to live in the village, said on the air of the Moskva 24 TV channel that two Orthodox families had indeed decided to buy plots of land here.
