Film about Russia’s war in Ukraine receives standing ovation in Cannes



“Frost,” a film by Lithuanian director Šarūnas Bartas featuring French actress Vanessa Paradis, received a standing ovation after its May 23 screening at the 49th Directors’ Fortnight, an independent section held parallel to the Cannes Film Festival.

The general producer of Ukrainian film office Insight Media Volodymyr Filippov posted a video on his Facebook page on May 23 showing the Cannes audience standing up, applauding and chanting “bravo” non-stop for a couple of minutes at the end of the screening.

Insight Media worked on “Frost” alongside Lithuanian film production company Studija Kinema, Polish film company Donten & Lacroix, and Ukraine’s Tato Film.

The film tells a story of a young Lithuanian man Rokas (played by Mantas Janciauskas), who volunteers to drive a humanitarian aid truck to Donbas, where he goes with his girlfriend Inga (Lyja Maknaviciute) and where, amid shooting and death, they meet different war reporters, one of whom is played by Paradis.

The movie was filmed in Ukraine’s war-affected towns of Kurakhove, Marinka and Krasnohrivka (sometimes as close as 200-300 meters to the frontline) as well as the peaceful settings of Kyiv and Dnipro in Ukraine, and Poland, Lithuania and France.

“Some people call it crisis or something else, but it’s a war, it’s a real war, even though it’s not officially declared to be such,” Bartas said during the Q&A session after the press screening of the film, “It’s easy to say who’s wrong and who’s right when you’re far away. That’s why our film crew of 30 people travelled to (the Donbas) where everything is in smoke and the shooting can start any minute.”

Apart from Paradis and the Lithuanian protagonists, “Frost” features Polish actor Andrzej Chyra, Ukrainian soldiers playing themselves, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense spokesperson Vilen Pidhorny, and foreign and Ukrainian frontline journalists..................

How will the US and Tymoshenko be after "all is lost"

Lack of support for Washington in the government leader of the "Fatherland" corridors coincided with a questionable political strategy choice in Ukraine



All last plenary week Ukrainian Parliament Yulia Tymoshenko walk. Or rather, as they say sources in the "Fatherland", I stayed in the States. In confirmation of this, in the media recently published pictures of Tymoshenko and her loyal international "Sancho Panza" Grigoriya Nemyri in one of the US airports. However, fellow party Tymoshenko flatly refuse to talk about the details of the trip under the entry. So, Sergei Sobolev said that the results of the voyage of his patroness to hold press conference.



However, as sources told Depo.ua into a leader surrounded by "Fatherland", especially boast her nothing. States that ocean policies held several meetings with persons close to the leadership of the Republican Party. During Tymoshenko talks in every way to convince them that the current government in Ukraine catastrophically lost the trust of voters. And since all of this coincides with the revanchism of pro-Russian forces, then there is only one way out of the crisis: early parliamentary elections, and later president. However, sources say the people that contacted the leader of the "Fatherland", only partially perceived its message across.

For example, on the issue of restarting the Ukrainian elite special comments seem to have arisen as a definite part of the American political elite believes that in this way you can get a more democratic parliament. The other is convinced that the result of the early elections in Ukraine will be a rematch of pro-Russian forces. But the main thing is not even that. Rumor has it that in Vashinshtone directly told that no one sees Tymoshenko in power in Ukraine. Like, the older generation of politicians should gradually withdraw from the scene.

Such a response of Americans - a complete disappointment, which, apparently, can only be compared with the "all is lost", after the collapse of "Shirky" Yanukovych and the Party of Regions in 2009.

In addition, sources said, is brewing Tymoshenko is another serious problem. In litigation lasting 13 years, the United States approached the confiscation of assets of ex-Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko. We are talking about frozen 250 million. Dollars. The very same Tymoshenko risks to be back in the midst of a scandal because of long-standing relations with Lazarenko. In addition, it is possible that a trip to the United States was aimed at to resolve this matter. Were you able to pull it off? Perhaps the question about the journalists promised to put oppositionist Sobolev press conference.

Yes, and in Ukraine the situation is for the head of "Fatherland" is as yet very difficult. On the one hand, such as opinion polls and give it high ratings, but as to their truthfulness raises many questions. In addition, without proactive and successful PR these rankings quickly fly down.

However, in order to be productive inform is Tymoshenko has actually gone. For some time she had seemed to be a very promising topic to ban the sale of land. It is worth mentioning the launch of the "Fatherland" with the "freedom" of the referendum, which was accompanied by the buildup region. But first Kyiv District Administrative Court decided to ban a referendum, and last week the Ukrainian Parliament finally finished off technology Timoshenko, unable to vote even for a draft resolution on the formation of a turn-based road-map of land reform. In political circles, unfortunately, there is no consensus on the subject, and, therefore, the implementation of zemreformy will likely be delayed again. And seemingly, Tymoshenko can celebrate: the reform, against which she fights stalled. However, our main policy is not the result but a process. Tymoshenko to freeze land market topics, in fact, runs the risk of a catastrophe, because that kept her in the mainstream, it was not currently relevant.

In general, the past six months, the socio-economic issues, which she used to focus attention on a regular basis "break". For example, we can recall the active criticism of the tariff policy of the authorities in the past year. However, once earned grants topic has been closed. Then came the turn of the ground threads, which also began to "deflate" ...

On what other subject on a PR platform can "migrate" Julia? Not hard to guess - the pension reform. But there are now so closely. A butt with Oleg Lyashko for the right to be the main defender of pensioners - not such a simple task. The other "hot" topics - can not see ...

It is not excluded that the "FatherLand" leader will try to work on a completely different direction, running anti-war technology. On allegations that the Ukrainians are tired of the war, the voter potentially bite. However, the main problem is that, during the development of this technology will have to use a set of absolutely pro-theses and speak some words with "opposition block".

"Russia won’t stop its campaign of aggression unless we force its hand," - Poroshenko

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko addressed G7 leaders.

Censor.NET reports citing Politico.

"Russia won't stop its campaign of aggression unless we force its hand. The Western world needs to commit to joint action and stand together to protect its values and respect for international law. Today, like on the eve of World War II, time is against us. The violence in eastern Ukraine is taking lives every single day. Delays and soothing half-measures are not only ineffective but dangerous.

"Russia's new generation of hybrid warfare is gaining momentum. And its effects spread beyond Ukraine. The Kremlin's tentacles are reaching for the throats of the key capitals of Europe and its transatlantic allies.

"Moscow's hybrid attacks strike on multiple fronts, with a priority on cyberspace. Those who are brave enough to cut these tentacles only find themselves under renewed attack. This recently became obvious in Ukraine. When we suspended access to social networks administered by the Russian Federation, Moscow responded with a massive and coordinated cyberattack supported by information propaganda. Russia activated its information forces, so well-known in Paris, Berlin and across the Atlantic, to protect its social media agents such as VKontakte or Odnoklasniki," Poroshenko wrote.

"History teaches us that appeasement leads to greater aggression. The more you feed the crocodile, the hungrier it gets. Only from a position of strength can sustainable peace be defended and security and stability restored. This requires increasing Ukraine's resilience by supporting crucial reforms and enhancing its army's defense capabilities, including boosting its store of modern defensive weapons. This also requires the West to stay firm on sanctions against Russia and be ready to strengthen them if need be, as outlined at the G7 summit in Ise-Shima, Japan.

"The G7 - a club of distinguished states and world leaders, from which Russia was expelled with disgrace - has an opportunity to clearly answer the aggressor. The Kremlin should not be able to wash the blood from its hands and escape responsibility for stealing Crimea and exporting war to the Donbas region.

"If the West is serious about peace and world order, it should bear in mind that restoring normal relations with Moscow still runs through Kiev. Russia must implement the Minsk agreements, especially those terms regarding security. It must return Crimea to Ukraine and restore our country's territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders. Doing anything else opens the door to disaster," the president concluded.

And if they remember it wise to point out that Russian Railways done right because they did not want to risk their precious passengers. A Ukrainian railways, of course, do not correct them because the risk no one - "Ukrainians" not people "- said Portnikov.

He was troubled by the fact that that the Russian opposition afford matyukaty readers who dare to compare "of the Yeltsin" there with some Poroshenko.

"The opposition, come down from the chair. Dear Yeltsin your heart not only tasuvav Chubais, Nemtsov and Kiriyenko - and dotasuvavsya to Putin. He also unleashed two shameful Chechen war - and no memory of grateful former allies did not abolish this shameful fact. And you unloved Poroshenko tries to stop the Kremlin unleashed another war - this time at the Ukrainian lands. yes, it is not very good at it - this is already Yeltsin picked successor. Reliable. Hopefully, though he greatly disappoints Russians as Ukraine ", - summed up the mule journal East.
