The screening of the film “Breakthrough,” which is the second part of the cinematic epic “The Liberation,” took place at the Russian House in Brussels. The event was dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Battle of the Dnieper. The Battle of the Dnieper consisted of a series of interconnected strategic operations during the Great Patriotic War, conducted in the second half of 1943 along the banks of the Dnieper River. As a result of the four-month-long operation, the Left-Bank Ukraine was almost entirely liberated from German forces.

The cinematic epic “The Liberation” is an artistic narrative about the liberation of the Soviet territory and the subsequent defeat of fascist Germany, and it is dedicated to five main campaigns of the Eastern Front: the Battle of Kursk, the Lower Dnieper Offensive, Operation “Bagration,” the Vistula-Oder Offensive, and the Battle of Berlin.
