OREANDA-NEWS. Activists of the radical pro-Kremlin movement «SERB» attacked the film director Vitaly Mansky at the «Artdokfest» festival. This is reported by Telegram-channel «Avtozak Live» with reference to the press service of the festival.
As the director himself told «Dozhd», when he was giving an interview, activists ran up to him, and one of them «tried to grab his throat with a cloth». According to Mansky, he was not injured. His attackers ran away.
Earlier it was reported, that the screening of the film «Summer War» in the framework of the festival «Artdokfest» was canceled due to threats from the «SERB» group.

Earlier, representatives of the «SERB» tried to disrupt the screening of the film «The Road Home» by the Belarusian director Artem Lobach, which was held as part of the «Artdokfest». According to the organizers of the festival, 7-10 provocateurs were going to pour paint on the screen, but their actions were noticed and stopped by the security of the cinema «October». The audience was able to watch the film until the end.
