Appointed as the Granddaughter (direct translation of the original title Naznachayeshsya vnuchkoy) is a Soviet 1976 (filmed 1975) made for TV adventure war movie, directed by Yaropolk Lapshin. The story is set in Autumn 1942 in a village on German occupied Kuban. Seventeen-year-old radio operator Yevdokiya (diminutive name Dusya) Melnikova is sent across enemy lines. She poses as the granddaughter of old Timofey, Soviet agent who impersonates a pro-Nazi collaborationist, a trusted person of German commandant.
