Disney Entertainment has explained why the award ceremony for the Ukrainian documentary 20 Days in Mariupol was excluded from the international TV version of the Oscars. In particular, the speech by the director of the Oscar-winning film, Mstyslav Chernov, in which he recalled the war and Ukraine's connection with the world, was also cut out.

Representatives of Disney Entertainment responded to a request from the Ukrainian Service of the Voice of America. The message says that the fragment was removed due to time constraints for the short version of the show.

The company emphasized that some categories and parts of the ceremony could not be left in the 90-minute version for international broadcast. The choice of nominations for the short version was determined in advance - their list was shown at the end of the show. Among them was 20 Days in Mariupol.

However, Lukyan Galkin, the executive producer of Suspilne Kultura, reminded that last year, the nomination, where the film about Russian Alexei Navalny won, was added to the show's shortened broadcast. Viewers could also watch a political speech by the Russian opposition leader's wife Yulia Navalnaya.
