The film about Ukrainian soldiers who fought for Crimea at the beginning of the occupation, won first prize at the Dream City annual international festival in Rivne, the film's director, Konstantin Klyatskin, posted on his Facebook page.

“Dear friends, our film "Crimea. As it was” took the 1st place in the category "full-length documentary” at the Dream City International Film Festival in the city of Rivne.

This is primarily the distinction for our heroes – the airborne assault company of the 1st separate marine brigade of the Ukrainian Navy, naval aviation brigade in Saki and the 1st brigade of surface ships of the Naval Forces of Ukraine,” Klyatskin wrote.

The film ‘Crimea. As it was’ has been shot in the framework of the association of documentary film makers ‘Babel-13’, and is the first documentary about the annexation of Crimea.

The conception of the film about those who heroically fought for the peninsula during its occupation by Russia was born a year ago. The shooting lasted for 10 months, at a cost of UAH 900 thousand.

After a long work of a crew team, the story of those who with dignity and honor done his heroic duty, was on general release in March 2016.
