(Russian?) Animated movie about a boy taking revenge on a nobleman?

Somewhere around 1985-1995, I saw a movie on Radio-Québec (as it was then called), during their "Ciné-cadeaux" annual holiday series of animated movies.
The setting looked Russian-ish, with animation reminescent (to me) of The King and the Mockingbird
. At the beginning of the movie, our (young) hero is unjustly punished by some sort of nobleman; he receives something like 100 strokes of a stick. For the rest of the movie, the hero tricks the bad guy into putting himself in a position where he can be hit, and then gives back the punishment, something like 20 strokes at a time.
