(QHA) -

"Crimea. Way Back Home"-- a documentary about how and when did the Kremlin decide to take Crimea from Ukraine, which is to be released on March 16, exactly a year after Crimean referendum--may be translated into 30 languages, including Crimean Tatar.

This was announced by Director General of Russia Today information agency Dmitry Kiselyov.

“We can make subtitles for this movie in 30 languages and distribute them through our resources. I believe this will be an important move for the benefit of Crimea,” - Kiselev told reporters in the Crimean capital Simferopol.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has instructed the Ministry of Justice to send the trailer of the "Crimea. Way Back Home," to International Court of Justice in The Hague.

"I ask the Ministry of Justice to send this trailer to the Hague Tribunal. It is necessary to send the whole movie to The Hague as well," Yatsenyuk said.

"The film will give the answer to the question who gave instructions to take over Ukraine's territory of Crimea, and who was responsible for that," Yatsenyuk said, pledging to shoot his own documentary entitled "Crimea. Crime and Punishment.", referring to Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel.

In the trailer of Andrey Kondrashov's forthcoming film, Russian President Vladimir Putin revealed that the idea of taking Crimea's return came immediately after ouster of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovich.

"The events in Ukraine began to develop in a way that we had to start considering Crimea's reunification with Russia. Because we could not abandon it [Crimea] and the people living on its territory, we could not throw the people under the wheels of this nationalist bulldozer," Vladimir Putin stated.

Crimea seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia a year ago, following a local referendum on the region’s status. The move was condemned as illegitimate by United Nations, United States, European Union countries, and other world powers.
