The European court has upheld sanctions against the head of the MIA “Russia today” Dmitry Kiselev: the decision was the result of his complaint, filed in may 2015.
“The European court of justice has upheld the restrictive measures of the EU Council in relation to mister Kiselyov”, — TASS quoted the court’s decision in Luxembourg.
Recall that Kiselev demanded to remove sanctions imposed over the situation in Ukraine. He stated that it is “only a journalist and Director of media company”, and therefore unable to influence the situation in Ukraine.
In addition, Kiselyov claimed that he never supported the “deployment of Russian troops in Ukraine”.
Recall that the TV presenter came under EU sanctions in March 2014: he has forfeited his right to enter EU countries, and have there accounts or estate.
In particular, due to sanctions at the time had problems with the transfer of money to address Russia Today as the company has been “knitted” Kiselev.
