The Russian Embassy in Australia, trying to prevent the screening of a film by Sergei Loznitsa “Donbass” expressed protest over the demonstration tape, calling it “anti-Russian propaganda.”
About this UKRINFORM reports citing the website of the guardian.
“We said, as ordinary viewers, not biased political paradigm… it is Difficult to imagine what’s going on in the soul of man (the Director of “Donbass” Sergei Loznitsa – Ed.) which is so tastefully depicts the residents of Donetsk and Lugansk national republics in the form of ugly, rude, aggressive and mentally disabled characters”, – stated in the commentary of the Embassy of the Russian Federation
In addition to accusations against the Director Sergei Loznitsa, also fall to the Minister of culture of Ukraine Yevhen Nyshchuk for what he allegedly called people of Donbass “genetically inferior”.
Finally the Russian Embassy wonders how such a film “raised on the shield in Australia,” and also awarded so many rave reviews: “Doubly strange that such a movie is “raised on the shield” in Australia, a country that proclaims the primacy of the values of multiculturalism and ethnic tolerance”.
However, the dirt, the slander, lies and distortion that comprise the specified comment caused quite the opposite effect than the one that it had expected the Russian Embassy. For example, the post with the specified comment to the film that the Russian Embassy has posted on his Facebook account gained hundreds of comments, the vast majority of authors who denounce Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine and occupation of Crimea, or speak approvingly of the film, Loznitsa, or thank the Russian diplomatic missions for the is tape.
For example, a lot of comments that the authors had doubts about whether watching “Donbass”, however, after reading the Russian review of the tape clearly Express a desire to watch a movie.
