Украина отказала в убежище оппозиционеру из РФ

Russian opposition leader taken in the neutral zone.

The Ukrainian authorities refused to grant political asylum to the Russian activist and member of the Yabloko party Vladimir Yegorov. About it the activist reported to Radio Liberty.

According to the oppositionist, the staff of the security Service of Ukraine brought it into the neutral zone on the border with Russia because Kiev saw no reason to grant the activist asylum.

Egorov left Russia in mid-June after his house in the town of Toropets, Tver region several times set on fire by unknown. The activist connects the attack with his opposition and anti-corruption activities.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that the family of Russia asked for refugee status in Ukraine.
