The complaint will relate to the controversial documentary titled "Ukraine: The Masks of the Revolution," which was broadcast on Canal+.

Ukraine requests that France review and evaluate compliance with the professional ethics of journalism of a reporter and editor who prepared the release and took the decision to broadcast the film.

It is noted that the French press has already expressed its readiness to consider the complaint.
