It emphasizes that “the most painful is the fact that the Polish TV channel “timed” film to the second anniversary of the revolution of dignity”. “I believe that the Polish nation, which during the years of its history have learned to appreciate the truth and reveal the insidious lie, give a decent assessment of this film, as well as the fact of his showing on the TV channel TVN24,” — said in a statement.
In early February, the film Moreira “Ukraine. Mask of the revolution” was aired on French TV channel Canal+, which also caused discontent of Kiev. The Ukrainian Embassy in Paris before it was released in the air asked Canal+ not to show it. However, the show did take place.
