Russian singer Natasha Korolyova said that she had filed a suit with the European Court of Human Rights because of the entry ban to Ukraine, RIA Novosti reports. According to the singer, she doesn’t know if the the court has started processing her complaint. Korolyova emphasized that she is an “innocent repressed person” and that the accusations against her are untrue.
In 2016, the Security Service of Ukraine restricted Kiev-born Natasha Korolyova (Poryvai) from entering Ukraine for five years. The Service acted in response to an appeal from Deputy Oksana Korchinskaya. In 2017, Korolyova was permitted to come to the country for the funeral of her grandmother. The SBU noted that the entry permission was temporary and active only during the funeral ceremony.
