Ukraine Ministry of Culture has banned entry to Ukraine for the Italian singer Albano Carrisi famous for Felicita song.
The Ministry has listed it on its website Carrisi's name is among those who pose a threat to Ukraine’s national security.
Ukraine Security Service (SBU) accuses the singer of public support of Crimea’s annexation.
For now, 147 people are on the list. Earlier, the Ministry of Culture added seven names of those who threaten Ukraine’s national security. Russian rapper Alexey Dolmatov (Guf), singers Larysa Dolina and Alexsander Buinov are among them.
As reported earlier, Ukraine told Austria that it would deny entry to veteran ORF reporter Christian Wehrschütz. Vienna has sharply criticized the decision of the Ukrainian authorities to ban the Austrian TV journalist from entering Ukraine for the period of one year.
According to Wehrschütz, "a small group of people that is not happy with what we write and what problems we cover" is behind the ban of entry for him.
