 FSB did not allow supporters of Savchenko to enter Russia: Even short stay is not desirable

People heading towards Rostov-on-Don to support Ukrainian pilot Nadiia Savchenko were stopped on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Censor.NET reports citing lawyer Nikolay Polozov's Twitter.

"At least one of group of Savchenko's supporters was not allowed to enter the Russian Federation in full force. They were kept for about 12 hours and then sent back to Ukraine. The FSB officers said that even a short stay of Savchenko's supporters in Russia is undesirable," the lawyer wrote.

Polozov informs that due to yesterday's Boeing crash in Rostov-on-Don, the local airport is still closed.

"The airport of Rostov-on-Don is closed until tomorrow. It's better to reach the court by train, or car, or even through Krasnodar," he wrote.
