YEKATERINBURG, April 20. /TASS/. Two Czech film producers have been detained at a railway station in Chelyabinsk for "unauthorized filming a transport terminal and arriving trains," a law enforcement source from the Chelyabinsk region told TASS on Monday.
"The Czech cinematographers explained that they were making a film about servicemen of the Czech Legion and had been shooting episodes in different places in Russia. Both film producers have left Chelyabinsk for Yekaterinburg," the source said.
Press service Chief of the Interior Transport Department of the Urals Federal District Yelena Yemiakhova has confirmed the incident. "On April 13 two men, who had been filming at the railway station, were brought to a transport police station at the Chelyabinsk railway terminal. Neither of them had documents authorizing filming at facilities of a transport terminal. They were asked to destroy the film on their own free will, which they did," the spokeswoman told TASS.
"The Russian law requires permission to filming scenes for commercial purposes; such permissions are compulsory for camera crews shooting a film," the press service of the Sverdlovsk Railways, which provides railway services to Chelyabinsk, told TASS. "The rules of getting such permissions are envisaged in regulations on TV, video, movie filming and photography at facilities belonging to the infrastructure of the Russian Railways," the press service said.
