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.

Sergey Sinelnik, an honored traveler of Russia, has covered tens of thousands of miles in sea runs, thousands of kilometers through great deserts of the world, climbing the highest peaks, and that's not all. And yet his main passion is sea. For several years now Sergey, his wife and children have been circumnavigating the globe on the wooden Pilgrim, a replica of traditional boats of Russian coast-dwellers – the Koch. And before that, he reached the shores of Australia on the Rusich boat, which is actually just a large wooden skiff. And the ancient Slavic vessel was a smash there.
There is a place in Finland, where they tell about the history of Russia in 15 languages every day, without a lunchbreak. Sveaborg (or Suomenlinna in Finnish) is a fortress which is now part of Helsinki city limits. It was founded by Sweden in the 18th century, then conquered and reconstructed by Russia, which owned the fortress for more than a hundred years, and passed it to Finland in 1917 following the country’s independence.
