"We were not allowed to go to Kyiv, the reason is not clear, the documents disappeared in an unknown direction. They took us to departure zone forcing to leave luggage in some unguarded and open space along the way, "he wrote.

On the video, also published on his page, Udot specified that he was denied entry due to the fact that he did not name the reason for the visit. At the same time, he stressed that he called the "tourism reason".
