Russian series and programs will not be able to participate in the international television award “Emmy” . This decision was taken as a sign of solidarity with Ukraine. In this case, all projects already submitted will be withdrawn.
The ban affected programs that were created by Russian companies and in partnership with them. Projects intended for Russian channels or streaming platforms also fell under the sanctions. The decision also applies to all members of the Academy from Russia.
Participants or those who wanted to become them are surprised by the situation. One of the first to comment on the situation was RTVI CEO Olga Piven . Her team planned to submit the Amazons of the 21st Century project for the award .
