The movie ‘Masks of Revolution’ by French director Paul Moreira allegedly distorts the performance of the events in Ukraine, said the Ukrainian Embassy in France. They consider that this film misinterprets the facts and asked the French national broadcaster not to air it.
The Ukrainian Embassy in France requested TV channel Canal + to cancel the showing of the film about Maidan events scheduled for February 1. The request was initially published on the embassy’s Facebook page, but later became unavailable.
According to the diplomats, ‘The Masks of Revolution,’ gives ‘a false and distorted picture of the situation in Ukraine.’
The Ukrainian representatives have also suggested their list of documentary films about Maidan events, ‘hoping that one day these movies will be shown on Canal +.’
The synopsis to the film ‘The Masks of the revolution’ on the Canal+ website says that this film presents a special investigation of the events that happened in Ukraine in 2014. In particular, it shows the actions of right-wing radical groups supported by the US and the violence in the southern city of Odessa in May, 2014 incited by the Ukrainain nationalists.
During the shooting period, Moreira, talked to members of such radical organizations as The Right sector, The Azov and studied the influence of the United States on the Ukrainian events.
