SBU: entrance to Ukraine closed for Finnish journalist who works in "DPR"

28.01.2016, 15:54

The citizen of Finland Janus Kostia Putkonen, who works as a propagandist in “DPR”, was not accredited by the Security Service of Ukraine in the ATO area. On August 12, 2015, SBU closed the Ukrainian border for him for the term of five years. SBU provided this information in response to Media Sapiens' request. 
At the same time, the media outlet comments, Putkonen allegedly was the head of the delegation of EU journalists, who visited the territory of "DPR" and "LPR". The Finnish resource yle.fi, however, calls this man "the main liaison between the rebels and the world press".
