Russian journalist Anna Kurbatova has been expelled from Ukraine. She will not be able to enter the country for three years, Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) spokesperson Olena Hitlyanska has said on Facebook.

"Russian propagandist Anna Kurbatova, who was decided to be forcibly expelled from Ukraine, has crossed the Ukrainian-Russian border. She is barred from entering our state for three years," she said.

Hitlyanska added that the journalist was blacklisted because of her work which was found detrimental to Ukraine's national interests.

Russian media earlier alleged that she was abducted in Kyiv.
