The watchdog ‘Detector Media’ reports  the movie shows work of officials  who were involved in preparations of official celebrations of Ukraine’s Independence Day and is widely viewed as a publicity stunt.

The President’s office movie follows the notorious practice of the early 2000s when the then Ukrainian president Kuchma officials used ‘temniki’ , government secret directives, to interfere with editorial policies of TV channels to  advance governmental agenda.
