The security service of Ukraine has declared Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin persona non grata in Ukraine, said the press Secretary of the SBU, Elena Gitlyanskaya, to RIA Novosti on Wednesday.
“Rogozin has been denied entry into Ukraine”, — said Gitlyanskaya.
Gitlyanskaya said that the entry of Rogozin is prohibited by law “On the legal status of foreigners and stateless persons”. The document says that the entry to Ukraine may not be resolved in the interests of national security.
However, in response to the request, the online edition of “Apostrophe” reports that the SBU announced a ban on the entrance to Ukraine of MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke.
