Ukraine denies entry to Italian journalist, says he's biased -The New York Times

26.03.2019, 14:47
Ukrainian authorities have denied entry to an Italian journalist, accusing him of an "anti-Ukrainian" bias, as The New York Times reported. Marc Innaro, a correspondent for the Italian RAI state television, has been barred from entering Ukraine when he arrived in the country to cover Sunday's presidential vote. Oleh Slobodyan, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Border Guards, said Monday that Innaro was refused entry because he "frequently engaged in anti-Ukrainian rhetoric in his reports." Slobodyan also charged that Innaro had failed to get accredited with election authorities in advance. The move follows Ukraine's denial of entry to a journalist from Austria's national broadcaster ORF who was declared a "threat to national security." Austria criticized the ban as an "unacceptable act of censorship." The New York Times, Associated Press
