SBU bans Steven Seagal from entering Ukraine for 5 years – media

Ukraine has banned American action movie star Steven Seagal from entering Ukraine for 5 years.

This is said in a letter published by the news site Apostrophe. The service’s press secretary later confirmed the ban to other media.

"Guided by Part 1 of Article 13 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Aliens and Stateless Persons" and Article 7 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Fundamentals of the National Security of Ukraine," the Security Service of Ukraine has decided to ban Steven Seagal entry to the territory of Ukraine for five years," the SBU said.

As noted, Seagal’s friendship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his outspoken support for his policies are the reason behind the Ukrainian action.
