Journalist’s Savik Shuster’s work permit in Ukraine has been cancelled, informed MP Sergiy Leshchenko on Facebook.
“Savik Shuster has been denied work permit in Ukraine”, - Leshchenko informed, elaborating that at first he received the authorization, but later somebody “changed their mind”.
“First, they gave him authorization to work, but later… changed their mind. Two events with a 2-week gap. Staff of migration service changed their mind after a phone call. This is what telephone justice looks like. This is unacceptable and it doesn’t matter to whom it is applied”, - the MP wrote.
Later that day, Shuster went to Kyiv city employment centre, demanding explanations why his work permit was cancelled. "The tension has been lasting for a while now, and today I can see the outcome", he told reporters.
Savik Shuster has been working in Ukraine since 2005. He has been a host of his own talk shows “Svoboda Slova” (“Freedom of Speech”), “Svoboda Savika Shustera” (“Freedom of Savik Shuster”) and “Shuster LIVE” on a number of Ukrainian TV channels.
