Russian movies: 25% projects for government grants

A quarter of next year's cinematic endeavours will be entitled to federal grants, says Alexander Golutva, Deputy Minister of Culture in charge of Russia's Cinematographic Service, affiliated to the ministry.

Several television serials will be dedicated to World War II history. Mr. Golutva singles out three of them-"A Great Victory", "Memorial Diary" and "The Finale".
