First Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s representative to the Humanities subgroup of the trilateral contact group Iryna Gerashchenko has supported a ban on the entry of representatives of the Russian media, which violated the Ukrainian legislation at the time of entry in the Crimea occupied by Russia, and considers it necessary to extend this practice to those who illegally visited certain areas of Donbass.

“Support and share the position of the GPS also expressed a colleague (not a relative) Anton Gerashchenko (Advisor to the interior Minister of Ukraine, MP from NF — ed.) about the ban on entry to Ukraine to those journalists who are illegally visiting the occupied Crimea. Yes and no it is not journalists, but propagandists. And about how everything “bad” at Eurovision — they are out for the curb will write. So there is nothing we have to roam,” said Gerashchenko.
Therefore, the Vice-speaker believes that the entry should be banned and the representatives of the Russian media, which illegally arrived on the uncontrolled territory of Ukraine of Donbass.
“But I also believe that a ban on entry to Ukraine should be introduced against those propagandists who illegally, not through PPC, but through the uncontrolled areas of the Ukrainian-Russian border stopped in the occupied Donbass. We need to help GPS to draw up these lists, so anyone who tracked in the occupied Donbas all sorts of Russian propaganda — please inform our security services. And they will make the right decision according to the legislation of Ukraine”, — said Gerashchenko.
