At the airport “Boryspil” near Kiev, border guards did not let two citizens of the Russian Federation to Ukraine because of the refusal to remove the St. George ribbon from suitcases.
This was reported by the State Border Service of Ukraine, the correspondent of “Political Navigator” reports.
“For crossing the border, foreigners had the necessary documents. But on the luggage of tourists, border guards noticed the attached St. George ribbons, which are banned in Ukraine. The Russians reacted negatively to the request to remove this symbolism. In this regard, these individuals were denied crossing the state border and returned to Minsk by return flight, “the report said.
As previously reported, “Political Navigator”, the Verkhovna Rada banned the use of St. George’s (Guards) tape in the country. For violation of the ban threatens the fine and confiscation of the tape, and for a repeated violation – an administrative arrest for up to 15 days.
