MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. A film about the events on Kiev's Independence Square also called the Maidan and the subsequent turmoil in Ukraine that was aired on Monday by the French TV channel Canal+ in spite of demands from Ukraine to drop it off the schedule marked the first-ever case where the West shed light on the 'Maidan revolution' events from an alternative angle, Duma member Frants Klintsevich told Rossiya’24 channel on Tuesday.
The film by Paul Moreira ‘Ukraine: The Masks Of The Revolution’ depicts the events on the Maidan in 2014 and explores the role that various far-right paramilitary groupings played in the bloodstained revolution and the ensuing tragic events, like the May 2, 2014, massacre in Odessa’s House of the Trade Unions.
Reporter Paul Moreira, the author of the film, met with a range of eyewitnesses, including the members of Azov and Right Sector battalions as he prepared the film.
The channel described the film as the one focusing on the time when "(…) paramilitary groups fought against the police in the streets of Kiev and ousted President Yanukovich."
"The Right Sector, Azov or Svoboda created parallel irregular forces that easily go out of control," it said in an advance note on Monday. "In Odessa, in May 2014, they were responsible for a mass killing without facing any charges. 45 people burnt to death. A massacre that didn’t get much attention (in the West - TASS."
"How come western democracies haven’t raised their voice in protest?" the channel asked.
"I’m absolutely confident that’s the first very serious official informational breakthrough in Europe, a situation where everything that is said about Russia or about the events in Ukraine was shown with a different informational emphasis," Klintsevich said.
He believes that Paul Moreira’s film has become the first challenge to the West’s domineering as regards the Ukrainian crisis. Now the European community will be able to learn truth about the events and to see a picture different from the one that is actively promulgated in Western countries.
"This film tells the truth," Klintsevich said. "Everything that’s happening in Ukraine and that’s done by European politicians under the pressures from Washington aims to discredit Russia, to create devastating processes in Ukraine, and to spread full disinformation about the events there."
