I imagine it would be like watching a Russian production of Gone with the Wind. I can only imagine Rhett Putin saying 'frankly my dear I don't give a damm'

For the Russians to buy this for the First channel - it's a heck of a coup,

The 1967 Soviet film was directed by Bondarchuk, which is a Ukrainian name.  I'm surprised Putin has not banned it yet. :laugh:
