Ambassador of Ukraine to the USA Valeriy Chaly hoped that a documentary about the events on the Maidan in Kiev will show in the nation's capital and new York.
Kiev's main square Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence square) - was occupied by supporters of European integration on November 21, 2013, immediately after the announcement of the government of Mykola Azarov about temporary suspension of the signing of the Treaty on the Union with the EU. Later, the Maidan became the epicenter of the confrontation between the security forces and radicals. The clashes, during which opposing political force many times used firearms and " Molotov cocktails ", were dozens of casualties. Against this background, at the end of February 2014 in Ukraine there was a coup, and leader Viktor Yanukovych was removed from power.
"I think we will agree to hold an indoor presentation in the nation's capital and new York. This film may actually qualify for the highest awards in the world cinema. Nothing more qualitative and accurately reflect the mood, and the chronology of the Maidan, I have until now not seen. I think that after America, This film will show in Ukraine - to remind what all this began, " - said Chaly.
The Ambassador also said that the purpose of film is to tell the world public and politicians about the battle of the Ukrainian people for their freedom ".
"I have had conversations with the directing team of the documentary Eugene Afineevsky, made by all Hollywood standards. His goal is to tell the world public and politicians about Ukraine since the Euromaidan. Really, he talks about the Ukrainian people, His fight for freedom, about how Ukraine today upholds democratic values and security in the world, " said the Ambassador.
