The popular children's television show "Masha i Medved" (Masha and the Bear) has become the first Russian cartoon to pick up a gong at the equivalent of the Oscars for animation films.
The prestigious 2015 Kidscreen Award for best animation in the Creative Talent category was handed over last month at a ceremony in Miami, Florida, the animators said on their website. ...
Masha and the Bear is a tale that goes back into Russian antiquity, and also into old Russian/Soviet film-making.
Congratulations to the winners.
