Series about Stalins Bodyguard Made in Russia
Stalin and Vlasik

Film series about the life of Stalin’s bodyguard Nikolay Vlasik will go on release next year in Russia.

      The film shooting was started in Moscow, and now is taking place in Rostov-on-Don. The series is titled Vlasik after its main character. The historical biopic will consist of 14 series.

      It will be a biographical series of Nikolay Vlasik, who served for many years as the security officer of the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. The film directed by Alexey Muradov, covers the period from the late 1920s till the 1950s.

      Nikolay Vlasik was born into a Belarusian peasant family in the Bobynichi Village of the Slonimsky District of the Grodno Province, finished three classes in a parish school, went through World War I, served until getting the rank of lieutenant general. For bravery in fights he was awarded the St George's Cross. During the October Revolution Nikolay Vlasik in the rank of the subaltern officer together with his platoon came over to the Bolsheviks. Nikolay Vlasik became, perhaps, the closest confidant of Joseph Stalin. He repeatedly rescued the Soviet dictator from attempts.

      A few months prior to Stalin’s death Vlasik was imprisoned. He was accused of abuse of the official position and connivance to “conspiring doctors”.
