Ukraine Bans Steven Seagal as Threat to National Security

American actor Steven Seagal was banned from Ukraine as he represents a threat to national security, as The Guardian reports.

The Ukranian security service has forbidden Seagal entry for five years, as they said in a letter published by Apostrophe. The information was later confirmed by the service’s press secretary.

The letter explains that such a decision is made when an individual has “committed socially dangerous actions … that contradict the interests of maintaining Ukraine’s security”.

Not long ago, the actor received Russian citizenship, handed to him by President Vladimir Putin.

Ukraine has also banned Russia from entering the Eurovision song contest which will be held in Kiev next week.
