Supporters of LDNR militants came to the screening of The Flight of the Bullet, a film about Donbas war, which was screened in Moscow. They threatened the organizers, as it was shown in the video published by Beata Bubenec, the director of the film. 

The screening was a part of the Artdokfest film festival. In the video, two people talked to Vitaliy Manskiy, the head of the festival. “If you show this nonsense, tomorrow 500 people will come here to deal with it,” one of them said. The men were cursing, constantly interrupting the director of the film and the head of the festival from speaking.

“We will simply not let you show such films in the centre of Moscow. The things you are showing are so harmless. Why don't you show people how they raped women, shoot people?” the man asked.He also said he fought in Donbas for three years starting 2014.

One of the people who came to see the film told Meduza that the supporters of the separatists started screaming “Shame!” and left only when security came.
