Ministry of Internal Affairs will ask to ban entrance to Ukraine and EU for Russian propagandist journalists
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine initiates ban on entrance to Ukraine and to the EU countries for the director general of the "First Channel" (RF) Konstantin Ernst and 300 other Russian journalists. The advisor to the head of MIA, Anton Herashchenko, informed about this on July 14 at the briefing in Kyiv, Interfax-Ukraina reports. The proposal to ban entrance to the EU for these individuals would, according to Herashchenko, show that Europe is against this propagandist approach and sheer lies in journalism. One of the reasons for such measures is the staged reels shown on Russian central channels, which show fake testimonies of alleged atrocities of Ukrainian troops. One of the stories was about torture and murder of a 3-year old boy in Slovyansk, told by a so-called refugee from Slovyansk, Halyna Pyshniak. According to MIA, such stories are forged and staged to help recruitment of Russian volunteers for fighting in Ukraine.
