The documentary project by Krym.Realii (Radio Liberty), The Silent Deportation, is a film about how Crimean Tatars are being forced out of Crimea, how Russia is once again leaving Crimean Tatars homeless. 

The film has received the Golden Award of the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards 2024 in the Human Rights nomination.

In the discussion that followed the screening, the participants discussed the situation in Crimea at the moment and why Crimean Tatars are forced to leave their homeland in large numbers. As well as why the indigenous people of the Crimean Peninsula are left with no choice, almost like in 1944, when the Soviet government forcibly transported Crimean Tatars out of Crimea in freight trains.

The authors of the film: 

Dmytro Dzhulai — director and screenwriter; 

Mykyta Isayko — cameraman; 

Anzhelika Rudenko — journalist and editor; 

Elvina Seitbullayeva — producer.
