    Canal+ released the new documentary "Les Masques de la Revolution" (The Masks of Revolution) about 2014 Maidan events in Ukraine.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) French TV Channel Canal+ released the new documentary "Les Masques de la Revolution" (The Masks of Revolution) about 2014 Maidan events in Ukraine despite Kiev's request to take it off the air.

    The film was broadcast on Monday at 10.30 p.m. local time (21:30 GMT).

    The synopsis to "The Masks of Revolution" directed by Paul Moreira as posted on the Canal+ website reads that the movie presents a special investigation into the events that unfolded in Ukraine in 2014. In particular, it portrays the actions by far-right radical groups backed by the United States and the violence in the Ukrainian southern city of Odessa in May, 2014 incited by nationalists.

    "Paul Moreira reveals the real faces of the Ukrainian revolution," the press review by the Telecable Sat broadcaster reads.

    On Sunday, the Ukrainian Embassy in France in Paris asked Channel Canal+ not to broadcast the film as it gives the viewer "a false picture on the situation in Ukraine," in a message posted on the diplomatic mission's page on Facebook, which was later deleted.
