Ukraine expelled the Russian political spin master Ihor Shuvalov, who was the head of information policy of the Inter TV channel, and banned him from entering for five years.
"Today, the Russian propagandist, the actual head of the information service of the Inter TV channel, the boss of the well-known provocateur Maria Stolyarova, Ihor Shuvalov, was expelled by Ukrainian border guards outside Ukraine with an entry ban for a period of five years," MP Anton Herashchenko wrote on Facebook.
According to LB.ua's own information, Shuvalov learn about the entry ban in the international airport Boryspil, as he headed to Russia via Belarus.
"The special services of the Russian Federation used the anti-Ukrainian activities of Shuvalov within special operations related to spreading the distorted and resonant information through the media, in particular, the accusations of the leadership of our country of the violent seizure of power in 2014," Herashchenko wrote.
According to him, Shuvalov also worked to disrupt the European integration reforms in Ukraine and actively participates in the promotion of Russia as the only winner of fascism.
Herashchenko reminded that Ukrainian authorities, including Oleksandr Turchynov and Arsen Avakov, sought to expel Shuvalov in March 2014. The then-head of the SBU Valentyn Nalyvaychenko, however, reversed the move, and Shuvalov has continued spreading the Russian propaganda for three more years, being the de-facto chief of information policy on Inter.
