Studio Kvartal 95, said the ban six seasons of the series “Matchmakers”, filmed in 2008-2013, in an absurd decision, contrary to common sense. This is stated in the official statement of the Studio.
The purpose of the prohibition of “Matchmakers” Quarter 95 called the desire “to divert attention from topical issues: the war in the East, economic and political crisis in the country, the deterioration of living standards”.
In the Studio stressed that “Matchmakers” – Ukrainian series, which was filmed in Ukraine, gave work to hundreds of Ukrainian filmmakers, and replenished the state budget of Ukraine.
Also Studio Kvartal 95, declared that he would defend their rights in international courts, “until there is a clear and transparent system of regulation of film and television sectors in Ukraine”.
In turn, the 1+1 TV channel broadcasting the series “Matchmakers”, said outraged by the ban on its broadcast.
“From 2015 in Ukraine there is the so-called black list of the Ministry of culture… as far As we understand, the cause of the ingress I and the prohibition of the series “Matchmakers” were the statements of the actor in the Crimea. But why now the question arose to ban the popular TV series produced in Ukraine, and for us remains a mystery. But other series and films with the participation of Dobronravova, which were shown on Ukrainian TV, was left without attention of the authorities”, – said the press-service channel.
The channel also said that can not understand the selectivity of the decisions on the entry of Russian actors in the “black list” because “there are still many artists who continue to participate in the filming and tours in the Crimea.”
