British Ambassador in Ukraine Judith Gough responded to an appeal regarding the prohibition of activities of a journalist Graham Phillips in Ukraine. It is reported by the press service of the British Embassy on Facebook.
The ambassador wrote that she had seen the video of prisoner exchange last week, and as the first deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada Irina Gerashchenko and Minister of Health Ulyana Suprun, is also stricken by Graham Phillips' behavior to Volodymyr Zhemchugov.
"In my opinion, this is not a journalism. Many people called on the UK to deprive him of a passport. Mr. Phillips did not commit violations in the UK, which could become the basis for the British government to ban him from leaving the country. If he violated Ukrainian legislation, these are the powers of Ukrainian authorities to decide what action they consider necessary to apply in relation to Mr. Phillips in Ukraine ", - she wrote.
Earlier it was reported that during a recent exchange of Ukrainians Volodymyr Zhemchugov and Yury Suprun, Phillips provoked and insulted Zhemchugov, trying to create a scandal and thereby disrupt the exchange.
After that, the Ukrainian Ambassador to the United Kingdom Natalia Galibarenko addressed to British authorities with a request to take certain measures to stop the activities of the journalist Graham Phillips in Ukraine.
