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.
