MOSCOW, May 17. /TASS/. The initiation of court proceedings to prohibit Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and several high-ranking Ukrainian officials from leaving the country is what nationalists justly deserve said Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Friday on her Facebook page.
"Just desserts for nationalists: if you value Ukraine above all, then live there without the possibility of leaving," the spokeswoman wrote.
Earlier on Friday, a court in Kiev initiated proceedings against President Poroshenko, speaker of Ukrainian parliament Andrey Parubiy, Ukrainian PM Vladimir Groysman and 177 other Ukrainian officials. The court is mulling over imposing an exit ban prohibiting all these officials from leaving Ukraine.
