MIP: Film ‘The Kremlin’s Prisoners’ Shown in Washington

On 22 May 2018, the documentary film ‘The Kremlin’s Prisoners’, produced by the UA|TV channel by the order of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine, was screened at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington.

The film was presented by Emine Dzhaparova, the First Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine; Mustafa Dzhemilev, the Commissioner of the President of Ukraine for the Crimean Tatar people; and Valerii Chalyi, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the U.S.

“This film is about what a person who falls victim to political repressions feels[, about] what the families of the Kremlin’s prisoners feel. Pain, torture, degrading and inhuman treatment – this is what nearly seventy Ukrainian prisoners of conscience are subject to in occupied Crimea and Russian prisons,” Ms Dzhaparova noted.

The film ‘The Kremlin’s Prisoners’ was presented on 26 February 2018 at the International Forum ‘The Occupied Peninsula: Four Years of Resistance’.

Earlier, on May 14th, the film was screened at the Representation of the European Commission to Sofia, Bulgaria within the framework of the public discussion ‘Four Years after Crimea’s Occupation: Can the Deadlock Be Broken?’
