The White Raven is the third novel in Scottish writer of historical fiction Robert Low’s four-part Oathsworn trilogy, released on August 6, 2009, by Harper. The novel garnered positive feedback.
The plot centers around Orm Rurikson, a young man who joined the crew of a Viking band as a boy and is now its reluctant captain. This tale follows the oath-sworn band as they return to their search for Attila the Hun’s mythical lost horde of silver. A portion of their party has been captured by Prince Vladimir and faces impalement if Orm fails to deliver the treasure.
Sniper: The White Raven, an upcoming Ukrainian war film, will be released in cinemas and on VOD on July 1 via Well Go USA Entertainment. Pavlo Aldoshyn, Maryna Koshkina, Andrey Mostrenko, Roman Semysal, Oleg Drach, Roman Yasinovskyi, and Oleg Shulga star in the film, which is directed by Marian Bushan.
Sniper: The White Raven follows Mykola (Aldoshyn), a former Ukrainian physics teacher who renounces his peaceful way of life after experiencing a needless tragedy at the hands of invading soldiers in the Donbas region in 2014, instead deciding to seek revenge on them.
Mykola sets his sights on an exceptional Russian sniper whose elimination could turn the tide of the fight once he joins the military and obtains a coveted post as a sniper.
While it is based on a genuine story and feels more timely than ever, Sniper: The White Raven takes place during the Crimean incursion a few years ago.
As seen in the clip, which Screen Rant can exclusively reveal, Mykola goes from pacifism to being a violent servant of the Ukrainian government after his wife is cruelly stolen from him. Whether he succeeds in his personal goal to get retribution on those who wrecked his life, or even in safeguarding the people in his care, will be revealed when the film is released:
Pavlo Aldoshyn (Mykola)
Maryna Koshkina (Nastya)
Andry Mostrenko (Cap)
Roman Semysal (Brigade commander)
Oleg Drach (Syeryy)
Roman Yasinovskyi (Klim)
Oleg Shulga (Danube)
