Kyiv is displeased about the upcoming Russian film, which is to be screened in Belarusian cinema theatres in September. The movie is dubbed ‘Crimea. Don’t tell your loved ones goodbye’; it is directed by Aleksei Pimanov and tells about a love story that took place during the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia in spring 2014.

‘We passed the protest note to the Belarusian Foreign Ministry’, the Ukrainian Embassy in Minsk said.
