Sausage Man Barred from Entry to UA

A British national who has lived and worked in Russia for the last two decades has been barred from entering the territory of Ukraine for three years, following a visit to Crimea. The visit was not just any old trip to grandmother’s house, rather, John Warren, wanted to help Russians “see their country”.
Warren hosts a culinary travel show called Let’s Go, Let’s Eat on Russia’s national NTV network, where several episodes have been shot in Crimea, including in April 2015, March 2016, and April 2017. The sour taste, and not just because of Warren’s ability in the kitchen, comes from the fact Crimea has been occupied by Russia since 2014.
Warren – a man who initially found import thanks to craft sausages he made and sold to Moscow’s expat community in the mid 2000s, is not the only one to have been barred from entry to Ukraine. Actors Gerard Depardieu and Steven Segal are no longer welcome, among dozens of others, following their vocal support of Putin over the annexation.
As it turns out, Warren was picked up at Kyiv’s Boryspil Airport upon going through security earlier this month. He came, but he did not eat.
