On March 21, the journalists from Lviv, Iryna Yuzyk and Khrystyna Inzhuvatova, who were on their way to the town of Donetsk (Russian Federation) to visit the trial of the Ukrainian prisoner Nadiya Savchenko, were denied entrance to Russia on March 20, Zaxid.net reports. The journalists were interrogated by FSB officers (the interrogation lasted 6 hours), and, after that, were denied entrance. The reason given was, "your presence in the country is undesired". Earlier, both women visited the Russian town where the trial is being held, where they picketed the detention facility where Savchenko is held prisoner.
