LONDON, January 14, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian authorities have denied an entry visa to the U.S. correspondent, David Satter, The Guardian newspaper said.
Satter, who has authored three books on Russia in the past, has visited the former Soviet Union and later on the Russian Federation on a big number of occasions since 1969 and has done several stints as a correspondent, including for The Financial Times.
His last arrival in Moscow was in the capacity of an advisor to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, a propaganda vehicle fully sponsored by U.S. Congress.
Satter, 66, went to Kiev last month and applied to the Russian embassy for a renewal of his visa but a diplomat at the embassy read out a statement to him, which allegedly said: “The competent organs have decided that your presence in the Russian Federation is not desirable. You are banned from entering Russia.”
“Such language is usually used in spy cases,” The Guardian observed.
Satter complained in the interview with newspaper that no official accusations had been made against him.
