“Mosfilm is the calling card of cinematic Russia, a huge chapter in the book of history and culture of our country,” Shoigu is quoted as saying on the Telegram channel of the defense department.

The Minister of Defense noted that Mosfilm produced all-time cult films by such directors as Eldar Ryazanov, Georgy Danelia, Sergei Eisenstein and others.

According to Shoigu, thanks to the unity of the team, professionalism and love of work, Mosfilm continues to actively work on the production of many domestic films.

Earlier it became known that the main archive opened an exhibition in honor of the anniversary of the Mosfilm film studio.
