Swedish TV channel postpones anti-Ukrainian film about Maidan

SVT TV channel has decided to delay broadcasting of the French documentary ”Ukraine – Dark Side of the Revolution ” until further notice, according to Svenska Dagbladet.
The movie would have been shown in SVT2 on Sunday, according to the report.
Axel Arne, project manager for SVT`s Documents from the Outside, says that the decision is not due to the existence of factual errors in the film but that there ”are uncertainties concerning the description of the extreme right-wing groups` influence.”
The project manager said he did not question the professionalism of the film director, Paul Moreira, the author of many films and research projects on global conflicts.
It remains unclear, when the TV channel is going to air the documentary.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the film was first shown on French Canal+ on February 1. Ahead of broadcasting, the Ukrainian Embassy in France appealed to the channel`s management to withdraw the film from its TV program, accusing the film director of manipulating comments and generating bias.
Among the documentary`s messages are: ”the involvement of ultra right groups [in Maidan protests] has long been ignored,” ”the nationalists are sponsored by Washington,” and that there was a ”mass murder in Odesa by Ukrainian nationalists.”
