German journalist and writer Saadi Isakov, who came to cover the mourning events on May 2nd in Odessa, was not allowed on the territory of Ukraine. This was announced by the attorney of the case of May 2nd Kirill Shevchuk, who is representing the activists of “Antimaidan”.

“Saadi Isakov was forbidden from crossing the border of Ukraine without explanation at passport control. Now he is in the transit zone, and at 23:00 will be sent back to Germany” – quoted TASS from the words of the lawyer.

According to him, the rights of journalists were violated: Isakov was banned from meeting with the lawyer, was not handed documented explanation of the prohibition of entry into the country, but also deprived of the right to appeal the decision.

Later, a German journalist was given a document that explained the ban as the decision of an authorized body, in particular the security service of Ukraine, however, without giving any reason.
