This was reported on Netflix's Facebook page.

The Ukrainian Oscar-winning documentary 20 Days in Mariupol will be available on Netflix starting April 21.

"Days that would rather not be experienced. "20 Days in Mariupol" - April 21 on Netflix," the streaming service briefly announced.

The film, created in cooperation with the American documentary studio FRONTLINE and the American news agency Associated Press, chronicles the first 20 days of the full-scale invasion, told through the stories of people who witnessed and were victims of Russian atrocities. "20 Days in Mariupol" shows how the Russians turned the city into ruins: bombing of a maternity hospital, shelling of residential buildings, mass graves, hiding civilians in basements, and the rescue of the authors of the film from the besieged Mariupol.

The film is accompanied by Chernov's voiceover. As the director explained in an interview, he does not express his own judgment or draw conclusions, but helps viewers better understand what is happening on the screen.

On March 21, the documentary 20 Days in Mariupol was made available on all Ukrainian services. During the first weekend of online screenings alone, the film became a record-breaker among documentaries on all Ukrainian platforms, with a record number of viewers watching it.

This year, the film won the first Oscar for Ukraine in the history of the country. The film won in the Best Documentary Feature nomination.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine has shown a video interview with Volodymyr Nikulin, deputy chief of the Donetsk police department, who became one of the main characters in Mstyslav Chernov's Oscar-winning documentary 20 Days in Mariupol and helped the film crew leave the besieged city.

The war correspondent and director of 20 Days in Mariupol, Mstyslav Chernov, said that it was painful to create the film throughout the entire process
