Russian blogger Danya Milokhin was not allowed into Ukraine. On January 9, the young man announced this on Instagram.
“We flew to Kiev, and we are being held captive <...> They didn’t let me in, <...> they turned us back,” he said in his story.
The blogger noted his location, indicating that he was in Kiev, and posted footage from the Kiev airport.
The reasons for not allowing Milokhin to enter the country have not yet been specified.
The day before, it was reported that the Ukrainian border guards did not allow a Russian actor (name not named) into the country, who was on his way to the shooting of the series, since he had previously visited Crimea.
In December, Russian singer Mary Gu (Maria Gusarova) also failed to pass Ukrainian control.
On October 21, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, together with the Security Service of Ukraine, expanded the black list of persons who are prohibited from entering the country, adding 13 cultural figures from Russia.
On September 13, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) banned the Russian performer Alisher Morgenstern from conducting any concert activity on the territory of the country.
Crimea returned to the Russian Federation following the results of the 2014 referendum. 96.77% of the region’s residents and 95.6% of the voters of Sevastopol voted for the accession. The procedure was carried out in accordance with international law. Meanwhile, Kiev considers the peninsula to be its “temporarily occupied” territory. Moscow has repeatedly stated that the issue of the subject’s ownership is closed forever.
