MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/.  The decision by the SBU, Ukraine’s intelligence agency, to ban Russia’s wheelchair-bound Eurovision contestant Yulia Samoilova from entering Ukraine is a cynical and inhuman act, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told TASS.

"This is yet another openly cynical and inhuman act by the authorities in Kiev," he commented.

Earlier on Wednesday spokeswoman for Kiev’s intelligence agency, Yelena Gitlyanskaya, said Yulia Samoilova would not be allowed to visit Ukraine for three years.
