The Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, DC has made an official appeal to a number of movie theaters across the United States with a request not to screen the Russian film T-34, which the Ukrainians see as Russian propaganda. The movie justifies the aggressive offensive of the Russian Federation against other countries.

 “The Ukrainian Embassy in the USA has reached out to a number of cinema theaters across the United States regarding the screenings of the Russian propaganda film T-34,” the Embassy posted on Facebook.

The Embassy has called on the theaters to reconsider their intention to screen the film, because it “openly justifies and promotes Moscow’s hostile foreign and security policy (including Russian ongoing aggression against Ukraine) through exploiting the memory of the World War II.”

At the same time, the Embassy thanked the representatives of the Ukrainian community in the United States that have already managed to stop T-34 film screenings in their cities and towns. Ukrainian diplomats have asked other activists “to join forces and appeal to local cinemas with the urge to ban the film and never amplify Russian propaganda in the USA.”

T-34 is scheduled to be screened in at least 14 cities in the states of New York, Texas, California, Philadelphia, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Washington, Colorado, and Massachusetts.
