MOSCOW, April 07, 23:14 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian border guards on Tuesday turned away the correspondents of Russian-language Forbes magazine, Pavel Sedakov and Artyom Goloshchapov, who were travelling to Dnepropetrovsk on a business trip, the Russian-language version of the Forbes magazine said in a report published on its website on Monday.
“The journalists were disembarked from the Moscow-Dnepropetrovsk train at the Kazachya Lopan station and were dispatched to Belgorod on the first train bound for Russia,” the website said. According to Pavel Sedakov, the Ukrainian border service has practically blocked the entry of young men with Russian passports to Ukraine.
An official refusal received by Sedakov said the journalist was denied entry to Ukraine because he did not have financial guarantees and could not confirm the purpose of his trip. Ukrainian border guards told the reporters they would be banned from entering Ukraine for three years if they tried to cross the border again.
Earlier on Monday, Andrei Ivanov, a journalist of the RUPTLY video agency incorporated into the RT television channel, was detained at Donetsk airport. The RT press service said that Ivanov had been detained and questioned at Donetsk airport in the morning of April 7 when he was leaving on a business trip to cover the situation in southeastern Ukraine.
The RT press service said that Ukraine’s border service had motivated its decision to deny entry to Ivanov by the fact that the journalist did not have enough means to stay in Ukraine. The border guards ignored Ivanov’s proposal to show his statement of account. The journalist said they had taken away his passport, which they promised to return upon his arrival in Russia, and put him on a plane to Moscow.
