Ukrainian border guards did not allow Russian singer Tatyana Lipnitskaya, who performs  under the pseudonym Bianka, to enter Ukraine.

The singer in Instagram unveiled a photo with a page in her passport stating that she was refused entry to Ukraine. The reason is - her previous performances in Crimea annexed by Russia.

"I do not support any political organizations and have nothing to do with politics. Sometimes, because of the tight concert schedule and other artistic activities, I do not remember which cities I've visited over the last month and what events took place there  (like most of artists, believe me!) My performance in Crimea was as diligent and sincere as the previous 50", wrote Russian singer.

According to her, she had to perform in Odesa on June 30.

"Those who have long been following my work and my life know that I have lived in Kyiv for 6 years, traveled all over Ukraine, received all kinds of national prizes, wrote a track in Ukrainian (because I know the language well) and consider Ukraine my homeland no less than Belarus and Russia, " Bianka added.
