According to Iryna Gerashchenko, Ukrainian representative in humanitarian subgroup in Minsk, entry to Ukraine should be banned not only for the journalists from Russian Federation, who illegally visited Crimea, but also for those who went in Donbas bypassing official checkpoints. She wrote this on her Facebook page.

"I believe that entry into Ukraine should be also prohibited for those propagandists who illegally went in the occupied Donbas through uncontrolled areas of Ukrainian-Russian border bypassing checkpoints. We should help State Border Guard Service to create these lists, thus, we are asking everybody who traced Russian propagandists in the occupied Donbas to inform our security services about that. And they will adopt the right decision, according to Ukrainian law," the message reads.

Iryna Gerashchenko noted this commenting on the decision of Ukrainian State Border Guard Service to deny entry for those journalists who illegally visited occupied Crimea.

"And these are not journalists, they are propagandists. They will manage to write that everything is "bad" at Eurovision even "outside the curb" (from abroad — 112.International). So there’s nothing for them to do here," Gerashchenko said.
