Russian film industry is in a very difficult position, with close access to the Ukrainian market it has lost hundreds of million dollars, says CEO of the film company "Russian world studios" Yuriy Sapronov.
in June of the current year in Ukraine came into force a law that will give the opportunity to introduce a ban on the presentation of films And TV series, "promoting" the power structures of Russia. Deputy Prime Minister for humanitarian issues, the Minister of culture of Ukraine Vyacheslav Kirilenko had previously stated that the prohibition applies to all "militaristic" films And TV series that were released after 1991, as well As all Russian television And cinema, created after 2014.
"currently all discuss VAT on American cinema, but no one talks about the fact that We in the Ukrainian market, where We implement their own content, lost hundreds of million dollars. For us is the door locked. And again, all the risk is on us (the filmmakers). And where to take these money circulating? We are all in Really quite a state of crisis, " said Fins news
He drew attention that the Russian filmmakers were deprived of a huge market complex And compensation has not, And did not think quite how We will survive, no one cares ".
"Really million five hundred (dollars), well, a minimum of 400 Russian producers earned in Ukraine, well, not earned - came to the budget. And For the industry half a billion Is a huge amount of money that went, as well As among them, And in the movies, " explained Sapronov.
The head of the "Russian World studios" added that " large channels 80% are ", And to borrow, because It is a huge percentage.
"We really are back in the 90 years if it doesn't get any support system, It is necessary to speak. Four billion, are being handed out, not enough, And from them, in my opinion, billion return. Thirty companies are in a tough history. It's a trap, but people have nowhere to go And they take the money, I hope to win, But after the situation is changing - the same risks, " concluded the head of the Department.
