Ukraine declared British politician Andrew Murray, who is one of the main advisers to the leader of the opposition Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn, the persona non grata, reports Daily Mail, referring to the SBU data obtained in cooperation with Apostrof.
In particular, the Security Service of Ukraine noted that Murray was banned from entering the country for a period of three years due to the fact that it poses a threat to national security.
The corresponding decision was made by the department in June this year.
In addition, the SBU commented that the British politician was declared persona non grata, as "is considered part of the global propaganda network of Putin, which sells Russian lies, especially against Crimea and the war in the east of Ukraine."
The publication stresses that Corbyn's advisor, who was a member of the British Communist Party for 40 years, created Solidarity with Anti-Fascist Resistance in Ukraine (SARU) in 2014 to conduct propaganda against the Ukrainian authorities in the countries of the West.
After Russia annexed Crimea, and also deployed troops to Donbas, Murray used the SARU to inform Europe that the conflict in Ukraine is a "war conducted by the Kyiv government" against "the people exercising their right to self-government."
He also said that Kyiv in the conflict in Donbas indulges the wishes of the European Union and NATO. In addition, Murray repeatedly expressed doubts about Russia's involvement in the tragedy with the MH-17 Boeing in Donbas.
Earlier, the State Border Service reported that after illegal visits to temporarily occupied territories 740 foreigners were banned from entering Ukraine this year.
