MOSCOW, 2 February. A film about the events in Ukraine, broadcast on French TV channel Canal+, contrary to the requirements of Kiev, was the first case when the West showed a different point of view on “independence”. This opinion was expressed by first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich TV channel “Russia 24”.
In France, despite the protests of Kiev, showed the film, objectively telling about the Maidan
“I am absolutely convinced that this is the first very serious, official information breakthrough in Europe when all that is said about Russia, about the events that happen in Ukraine, … will be shown with a different accent information”, – said the Klintsevich.
According to the politician, the French film-maker was the first to challenge the information dominance of the West regarding the Ukrainian crisis, which provided an objective assessment of events in Ukraine. He also added that now the European community will be able to learn the truth about the events different from that which is actively promoted by the West.
“It says the truth… All that is done in Ukraine, and everything that makes European leaders under serious pressure from Washington, all aimed at discrediting Russia, the creation of destructive processes in Ukraine and disinformation on the events that occur there,” the Senator said.
French journalist Paul Moreira, made the film “the Mask of revolution”, in which he tried to understand the tragedy in the trade unions building in Odessa, and the U.S. role in the events in Ukraine.
