The premiere of Balkan Frontier Russian-Serbian movie will be held in Moscow on Thursday, March 14. Audience in Serbia will see it early next week. Worldwide release starts on March 21, TASS reports. 

According to actor Milos Bikovic, who played a major role in the film, the script is based on real events. The movie tells about the raid of Russian paratroopers on Pristina in 1999. 

The artist called the military adventure drama, directed by Andrei Volgin, a story of conscience, heroism and courage. 

The film is released on the eve of the 20th anniversary of NATO aggression against Yugoslavia. This coincidence is not accidental. Milos Bikovic is sure that people should not be allowed to forget the history of their own country. Only in this case it will be possible to preserve their identity. 

Famous musician, actor and director Emir Kusturica appeared in one of the episodes of Balkan Frontier. In his opinion, it is impossible to overestimate the importance of preserving the memory of the past tragedy. Russian stars Gosha Kutsenko, Anton Pampushny and Ravshana Kurkova also starred in the movie. Serbian actors Gojko Mitic and Milena Radulovic were involved. 

As Russkiy Mir reported, the movie was shown at the European Film Market. It was held in parallel with Berlin Film Festival. The film aroused great interest among distributors.

Its goal is to eliminate Russian language from kindergartens of national minorities. Truth be told, there was a hitch before the second reading, though it did not last long…
This spring marks 125 years since the release of the highest decree of Emperor Nicholas II on the establishment of the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. The uniqueness of the museum was that literally the whole country collected exhibits for its collection - from peasants, who gave away ancient household items, to representatives of the upper classes, who donated the richest collections of paintings to the fund. These days, the Russian Museum is exploring new territories both in Russia and abroad. It confirms that for Russian art there are no borders.
