KIEV, March 20./ITAR-TASS/. Four Russian journalists were refused to cross the Ukrainian border allegedly for failing to state the purpose of their visit to the country or having insufficient financial means, the Ukrainian Border Guard Service reported on Thursday.
“Today in the early morning, border guards at the Dontetsk Airport did not permit three Russian citizens to enter the country,” the service reported. “They failed to state the purpose of their visit and place of their stay during the visit. It turned out later that they work for the [Russian] television channel NTV.”
Another Russian national, who said that he worked for the French-German television channel, was also denied to enter Ukraine.
“During the customs-clearing procedure it turned out that he had insufficient financial means to enter Ukraine,” the service added.
