Poland denies entry to Ukrainian national from its so-called "black list"
Polish border guards on Saturday denied entry to the country to a Secretary of the State interdepartmental commission for commemorating participants in the Anti-Terrorist Operation, victims of war and political repressions, Svyatoslav Sheremeta, according to a Lviv news outlet Varianty.
Sheremeta was traveling to the Polish city of Lansut together with the delegation of the Nadsanya organization in one of the two delegation’s buses. At 12:00, at the international checkpoint Shehini, border guards took his passport and ordered him to wait for the shift manager, Varianty reported, quoting Sheremeta as saying.
Svyatoslav Sheremeta was informed that he was barred from entering Poland and the Schengen zone for one year.
It is reported that Svyatoslav Sheremeta is a holder of a Schengen visa issued by Germany.
