Ukraine imposed sanctions on politicians from the Czech Republic and Serbia for visiting the Crimea

The Security Service of Ukraine decided to ban for a period of five years the entry of four deputies from Serbia and a deputy from the Czech Republic who had traveled to the Crimea. Olena Gitlyanska, the press secretary of the Security Service of Ukraine posted this update on Facebook.

"The Security Service of Ukraine checked information about the presence of politicians from European and other countries in the Crimea who arrived there at the invitation of the pro-Russian authorities ‘to celebrate the third anniversary of the pseudo-referendum.’ It turned out that four citizens of Serbia and one citizen of the Czech Republic are staying illegally on the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea," Gitlyanska wrote.

She also noted that information regarding the citizens of Ukraine in this delegation has not been confirmed to date.

Last week, about 20 people, some of whom were deputies of the European Parliament, as well as politicians from the EU, CIS countries and Latin America arrived for a three-day visit to annexed Crimea.

The delegation includes members of the Serbian Radical Party, Milovan Bojić and Dubravko Bojić, a member of the Presidium of the Serbian Radical Party, Alexandar Šešelj, Serbian writer and political scientist, Professor of the University of Banja-Luka Srđa Trifković, and member of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament, Jaroslav Golik.The Security Service of Ukraine decided to ban for a period of five years the entry of four deputies from Serbia and a deputy from the Czech Republic who had traveled to the Crimea.
