The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky was banned from the & nbsp; territory of his own state. True, not & nbsp; in & nbsp; as a politician, but & nbsp; in & nbsp; as an artist. The film, in which he & nbsp; played the main role, has not & nbsp; for many years has been deprived of a rental certificate.
“Not a single company since & nbsp; October 2015 & nbsp;”
About & nbsp; this incident is reported by the edition “ Ukrainian News ''. Journalists sent an official request to the & nbsp; address of the State Agency for & nbsp; Cinema Issues regarding the fate of the film Rzhevsky vs. Napoleon.
“ Goskino did not & nbsp; issue a rental certificate for & nbsp; film & bdquo; Rzhevsky against Napoleon & ldquo; (Russia, 2011, director M. & nbsp; Weisberg) nor & nbsp; no distributor company since & nbsp; October 2015 & nbsp; year & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; said in the & nbsp; response of the department, which leads the publication.
The creators of the comedy were the Central Partnership Leopolis company; and & nbsp; 'Quarter-95'. The brothers Sergey and & nbsp; Boris Shefiry , and & nbsp; also Sergey Livnev, Andrey Yakovlev and & nbsp; Vladimir Zelensky. & Nbsp ;
Writers Andrey Yakovlev and & nbsp; Mikhail Savin decided to creatively play the history of the Patriotic War of 1812 & nbsp; year. According to the & nbsp; plot, Field Marshal Kutuzov sends Lieutenant Rzhevsky to & nbsp; Napoleon with & nbsp; the task of pretending to be a woman and & nbsp; seducing the emperor.
Director paintings became Marius Weisberg , before & nbsp; this already shot one scandalous pseudo-historical comedy: “ Hitler kaput! ''. By the way, initially the new tape was planned to be called “ Napoleon Kaput! ''. The role of Lieutenant Rzhevsky went to Pavel Derevyanko , in & nbsp; “ Hitler kaput! '' who played Standartenführer Olaf Schurenberg. Zelensky became Napoleon, who had previously worked with & nbsp; Weisberg on the & nbsp; painting “ Love in the & nbsp; Big City ''. & nbsp;
“ The death of thousands of people in the Donbass & nbsp; & mdash; that's what is scary '': what they didn’t & nbsp; forgiven Yuri Galtsev
The film “ Rzhevsky against Napoleon '' received negative reviews from critics and & nbsp; caused mostly negative emotions in & nbsp; viewers. According to & nbsp; data from & nbsp; open sources, the cost of & nbsp; production of the tape amounted to $ 8.5 million, and & nbsp; fees in & nbsp; world box office & nbsp; & mdash; $ 10.3 million. The project, to put it mildly, turned out to be not the & nbsp; most successful in the & nbsp; history of Quarter-95.
But & nbsp; problems with & nbsp; rental on & nbsp; Ukraine, including & nbsp; including with & nbsp; demonstration on & nbsp; TV, are not caused by & nbsp; low quality of humor in & nbsp; this comedy. Rzhevsky vs. Napoleon suffered because of … Yuri Galtsev.
In the & nbsp; comedy, he & nbsp; played the episodic role of the mayor, but & nbsp; this was enough for & nbsp; 2015, the tape with & nbsp; Zelensky got into & nbsp ; blacklists.
Galtsev is included in the & nbsp; lists of cultural figures posing a threat to the national security of Ukraine. The comedian signed an appeal of cultural figures of the Russian Federation to & nbsp; support for the policy of the President of the Russian Federation & nbsp; V. & nbsp; V. Putin in & nbsp; Ukraine and & nbsp; in & nbsp; Crimea, repeatedly visited the peninsula and & nbsp; is not going to change my point of view. & Nbsp;
In the spring of 2015 Galtsev in & nbsp; interview to the publication “ Around & nbsp; TV '' said: “ With & nbsp; Crimea, Putin will go down in & nbsp; history. And & nbsp; if & nbsp; would have moved a little earlier, then & nbsp; and & nbsp; in & nbsp; Ukraine would not & nbsp; would not & nbsp; … And & nbsp; the leaders of Ukraine at the same time talk about & nbsp; international law, trying to build democracy! I can’t be a & nbsp; politician, nor & nbsp; a policeman: I & nbsp; would punish everyone & nbsp; complete & raquo ;.
When it became known about the & nbsp; hit of the artist in the & nbsp; “ black lists '' and & nbsp; the prohibition of films with & nbsp; his participation, he & nbsp; in & nbsp; interview to the edition & quot; Petersburg Diary & quot; Reacted to it like this: “ Children's films, what's the difference where they & nbsp; show, in & nbsp; Russia or & nbsp; Ukraine? Funny and & nbsp; stupid. Before, I & nbsp; several times a week in & nbsp; Kiev flew, worked with & nbsp; the most beautiful people. And & nbsp; is now & nbsp; & mdash; & bdquo; let us & nbsp; ban Yura Galtsev & ldquo; … The death of thousands of people in the Donbass, that's what's scary … We've done something terrible, the people are silent, and our children and & nbsp; grandchildren will have to figure it out. They will ask & nbsp; parents: & bdquo; Why didn't you & nbsp; stop it? & Ldquo; & raquo; & nbsp;
How the most popular project, Quarter-95, was banned
It is clear that modern Ukraine is not & nbsp; the way with & nbsp; Galtsev. But it turns out that along with himself, he “ pulled '' under the ban and & nbsp; Zelensky, who played in the & nbsp; film “ Rzhevsky against Napoleon '' the main role.
According to & nbsp; data of the edition “ Ukrainian News '', “ Rzhevsky against Napoleon '' & nbsp; & mdash; This is the only picture with & nbsp; participation of the President of Ukraine, which is prohibited to be shown on & nbsp; territory of the country.
In & nbsp; 2017, in & nbsp; An independent threat of a ban hung over the popular TV series Svaty, which was also a product of the company. Quarter-95 '. The reason for its ban was & nbsp; the fact that one of the & nbsp; main roles in & nbsp; was played by the actor Fedor Dobronravov , to whom the SBU closed the entrance to & nbsp; Ukraine due to repeated visits to Crimea.
Zelensky, who was still at that & nbsp; time not a politician, but & nbsp; a producer, reacted to & nbsp; what was happening quite sharply: “ The last day brightly, in & nbsp; all the media, such an important economic issue for our country is being discussed: to ban the series & nbsp; Matchmakers & ldquo; … Without this & nbsp; the economy of our country does not grow in any way. This series is loved by millions, watched by millions. If now the task of the SBU and & nbsp; all our committees is simply to take the series from & nbsp; people, then & nbsp; you & nbsp; then say so and & nbsp; and & nbsp; do not & nbsp; come up with various reasons. If someone does not & nbsp; like the word & bdquo; matchmakers & ldquo;, you are closer to the word & bdquo; kumy & ldquo;, then & nbsp; you & nbsp; first fight your nepotism, and & nbsp; then you will fight & nbsp; our & bdquo; matchmakers & ldquo;. You are & nbsp; & nbsp; what unites millions of people all these long years. This is a Ukrainian TV series. Invented by me and & nbsp; my colleagues, for & nbsp; that I am not & nbsp; ashamed. And & nbsp; he & nbsp; filmed for & nbsp; our money by our people. Why the hell are you suggesting anything at all? Who are you? What have you done? If you are & nbsp; the Security Service of Ukraine, then & nbsp; take care of & nbsp; the security of the country, so that you can freely go out to the & nbsp; street and & nbsp; children are not afraid. & Nbsp;
Dobronravov's position on & nbsp; Crimea has not & nbsp; changed. But & nbsp; Zelensky needs to make money on & nbsp; new “ Matchmakers ''
Due to the bans imposed by the SBU, the shooting of the new season of “ Matchmakers '' were ripped off. In & nbsp; 2020, the sanctions imposed on Dobronravov were not & nbsp; extended, which made it possible to shoot the 7th season of the project. In November 2021, the film will be released on & nbsp; TV screens and & nbsp; is already in full swing announced by the TV channel “ 1 + 1 ''.
A number of Ukrainian users on & nbsp; the eve of the premiere recalled the words of Dobronravov, said in an interview with 1tvnet. .. to & nbsp; Russia & raquo ;.
From & nbsp; his words Fedor Viktorovich, in & nbsp; 2020 awarded the Order of Friendship & nbsp; for & nbsp; great contribution to & nbsp; development of national culture and & nbsp; art, long-term fruitful activity & raquop;, never & nbsp; ; refused. Exit “ Matchmakers '' takes place against the & nbsp; background of a new increase in the blacklist Russian cultural figures declared a threat to Ukraine. Now in & nbsp; it already has almost 300 & nbsp; surnames.
And & nbsp; here Dobronravov was expelled, as it prevents Zelensky's team from making money on & nbsp; “ Svatakh ''. & Nbsp;
On the & nbsp; film & laquo; Rzhevsky vs Napoleon & raquo; at & nbsp; “ Quarter-95 '' earnings, apparently, are not & nbsp; expected. So the Ukrainian president can be & nbsp; banned, with & nbsp; he will not & nbsp; diminish.
