The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has declared Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's chief political adviser and former communist Andrew Murray a persona non-grata, Daily Mail has said, citing a letter from the SBU. 

"Jeremy Corbyn's most influential Commons adviser has been barred from entering Ukraine on the grounds that he is a national security threat because of his alleged links to Vladimir Putin's 'global propaganda network'," reads the statement.

It notes that the former communist was slapped with the three-year ban in June on the advice of the country's security service, the SBU.

Murray, in turn, denied being part of any "so-called propaganda network." However, it was he who has played a key role in a campaign to support pro-Moscow separatists in Ukraine, the newspaper writes.

Murray also questioned whether Moscow was responsible for the shooting down of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew, over Eastern Ukraine in that year.
