Russian director and head of the country's Cinematographers' Union Nikita Mikhalkov proposed on Thursday the founding of a Eurasian Film Academy, with an award similar to the United States Academy Awards' Oscar, APA reports citing Teletrader.

In recent years, the West started calling something "that is not art," art, the director said during the Eurasian Economic Forum.

While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences imposed no explicit ban on Russian movies, the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences barred Russian programs from competing for Emmys.
