Storyline

Kievan Rus, late 10th century. After the death of his father, Svyatoslav I, ruler of Kievan Rus, the young Viking prince Vladimir of Novgorod (Danila Kozlovsky) is forced into exile across the frozen sea to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov), who has murdered his other brother Oleg (Kirill Pletnyov) and conquered the Viking territory of Kievan Rus. The old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) convinces Vladimir to assemble a Varangian armada, hoping to reconquer Novgorod from Yaropolk and ultimately face the mighty Byzantine forces. Written by Fenris

F#king sh%t

Really? Spend a 1 500 000 000 RUB & 7 years to film that bullshit? What a joke, and not a piece of true with a historic moments! Seems director and writer never read a book about that time! Prince Vladimir of Novgorod seems to be an idiot with no power in hand, it is not possible to become a powerful person with such of behaviar as he!

So do not recommend to watch it, at all!
