“Such a warm meeting with sincere and kind people would be remembered for the whole life. All the conversations with such people are dedicated to the urgent topics: war, Crimea and Donbas reintegration, the prominent future of Ukraine, the art, especially during the war. It was very interesting to find out about some episodes of the filming process as well as to sing our Ukrainian songs,” the president wrote.

“That’s why the state should invest money in the Ukrainian cinematography, and first of all in the films about war – while the wounds still the hurt and you cannot hide the truth. I’m pleased to know that Akhtem is currently working on another film, also about one of the heroic operations during the Russian-Ukrainian war. I’m sure that “Cyborgs” will be popular not only in Ukraine but in Europe as well,” Poroshenko added.

As we reported earlier, Ukrainian film "Cyborgs’ has broken the record on the box office and number of views in the times of independent Ukraine.
