"The Trial: The State of Russia vs Oleg Sentsov" — documentary by Askold Kurov — was shown during the film's world premiere at the Berlinale - Berlin International Film Festival on February 11. The hall was completely full. Participants of the premiere did a flash mob, demanding the release of illegally detained Ukrainian filmmaker from the Russian Federation.
This was informed by Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany on Facebook.
According to the envoy, jury of the festival, Bundestag deputies and diplomats visited the event.
Reruns of the film at "Berlinale" will be shown on February 12, 14 and 16.
As it was reported earlier, Russia has once again refused to repatriate Ukrainians Oleg Sentsov and Olexandr Kolchenko to their motherland.
