Legend of Russian Animation Gennady Sokolsky Passes Away

The animated film director Gennady Sokolsky, aged 78, died in Moscow on Sunday.

Besides, he took part in creating a range of popular Soviet children’s animated films, such as Merry Roundabout, Adventures of Lolo the Penguin, Taree the Birdie, Silver Hoof, Ivashka from the Pioneers’ Palace, and The Little Sorcerer.
