` Denying Photographer entry to `Ukraine’ reason given ` Insufficiency’ of `Assets ‘on his bank card’

#AceWorldNews says that Ukrainian customs officials at the airport of the eastern city of Donetsk did not let Itar-Tass news photographer Sergei Fadeichev enter the country’s territory Sunday afternoon, Fadeichev said in a phone call to the editorial office in Moscow -TASS

The official pretext for denying him an entry of Ukraine was the insufficiency of assets on his bank card (the required minimum is 50,000 rubles).

To confirm the availability of that reserve on the bank account, he was told to submit a confirmation from the card issuer, the Russian Savings Bank (Sberbank), which could be issued to him only in Moscow.
