“I'm sitting in the airport in Kyiv. This is an unpleasant story, of course, - they did not let me out (from the airport, - ed.). It's a pity for Kyivans, the spectators who bought tickets and were going to watch a great comedy today, the premiere,” the actress said.
The actress apologized to the audience, who suffered from this situation, and added that "officials and authorities are one thing, and people are not to blame for anything."
State Border Guard Service said they banned entry for Elena Vorobey for three years, reports Interfax-Ukraine.
