Script S.Supruniuk
Director S.Supruniuk

 


The film is about soviet falsification of historical events of reuniting Ukraine with Russia. In 1954 in the Soviet Union the textbooks on history were hastily rewritten changing the term "joining" by "reuniting". The Ukrainian historians who raised objections to the state policy were discharged. The film is made on the bases of documents of the Pereyaslavska Rada (Pereyaslav Council) and Bohdan Khmelnytskyi' "March clauses".
