Dmitry Peskov characterized the bestowal of the “Oscar” to the motion picture concerning Alexei Navalny as a “politicizing element”.

According to the Kremlin spokesman, he cannot judge the quality of this work, because he has not seen it and “it would be illogical to say anything”.

The presentation of the award to Navalny was also criticized by the adviser to the chief of staff of the Ukrainian president Mikhail Podolyak. “If Oscar is outside politics, then how to understand Navalny’s documentary manifesto, where Russian domestic politics overflows? If Oscar is out of (conflict) in Ukraine, then why are you constantly talking about humanism and justice? he tweeted.

The film “Navalny” by American director Daniel Roer received an Oscar in the nomination “Best documentary film”. The film covers the period from when politician Alexei Navalny emerged from a coma at the Charité clinic in Berlin after being poisoned in August 2020 until his return to Russia in January 2021.
