State Duma offended by being called an aggressor and wants to ban Ukrainian deputies from entering Russia

Russian State Duma can recognize Ukrainian MPs, who voted for recognition of Russia as the aggressor country, as persona non grata.

Russian State Duma may consider the Ukrainian MPs, who voted for recognition of Russia as the aggressor country, as persona non grata. The proposal was made by Valery Rashkin, the MP from the Communist Party, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the Russian media.

"As a deputy of the State Duma acting in the interests of my country, I intend to apply to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a request to prohibit the Ukrainian deputies of all levels, who voted for this decision, to entry Russia," said State Duma deputy from the Communist Party Valery Rashkin.

He believes that those, who regard Russia as an aggressor, have nothing to do on its territory. According to him, it is "unwise to allow" the Ukrainian politicians supporting "Russophobic schizophrenia" to visit the Russian Federation on both business and political purposes.

It should be recalled that recently the Nikolaev City Council deputies supported the decision of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and recognized Russia as an aggressor.
