"Radiolur" has already informed that April 23 the Secretary of the
Union of Cinematographers of Armenia Mickael Dovlatyan was attacked
in a subway in Moscow.

The film director said today during the meeting with journalists
that he does not consider the accident a crime against Armenians; he
characterized it as a chauvinistic expression that has been largely
spread in Russia recently, against which no proper measures are being
undertaken by state authorities.

However, President of the Union of Cinematographers Ruben Gevorgyan
informed that several Russian female film directors refused to
participate in the film festival to be held in Yerevan, since they
are afraid.
