Ukraine freezes release of Russian war movie
The movie was set to premiere in Kiev in May, just weeks before Ukraine co-hosts the Euro 2012 football championship. But the Ukrainian film agency said on April 10 it will take another month to decide whether to release the movie.
Some officials say the film portrays Ukrainians as Nazi collaborators. They also fear it may stoke anti-German sentiments ahead of the championship.
