No film is submitted: Russia is boycotting the upcoming Oscars

According to "The Hollywood Reporter", the Russian Film Academy has announced that it does not want to submit a work for the "Best Foreign Film" category for the upcoming Oscars on March 12, 2023. The decision can be seen as another sign of the growing rift between the two nations since Vladimir Putin, 69, gave the order to attack Ukraine earlier this year.

According to the report, even for the Russian filmmaker Pavel Tchoukhraï (75), head of the local Oscar committee, this decision came as a complete surprise and was made "behind his back". He is said to have already resigned from his position.

Most recently, Russian films that were demonstrably financed by the government were banned from various film festivals. On the other hand, most organizers rejected a general boycott of Russian works.
