Aleksandr Pankratov-Chyorny

People’s Artist of the Russian Federation

When Heydar Aliyev worked in the Politburo, he was in charge of the cultural sphere, along with many other fields. He attached great importance to meetings with artists. And that made us very happy. Heydar Aliyev’s meeting with cinematographers in Moscow was a historic event. It was the first time in the history of the Central House of Cinema that a member of the Politburo held a meeting with cinema workers in this institution.
