Corriere della Sera. The reactionary decision of Kiev Gorbachev banned the entry of

The paradox of history: Ukraine has banned entry into the country Gorbachev, who essentially owes its independence, writes Luigi Ippolito in an article published in the newspaper Corriere della Sera.

The reason for the unusual stigma — the long-suffering Crimea, Gorbachev, criticizing Putin on many domestic issues, in a fit of patriotism endorsed the annexation of the Ukrainian region Moscow. In an interview with The Sunday Times former President of the USSR said that in a similar situation would have done the same as Putin, reminiscent of the Italian edition.

As the representative of the SBU, Gorbachev banned to visit Ukraine for five years in the interests of national security and due to the fact that he publicly expressed support for military annexation of Crimea. Gorbachev with his poor health at age 85, poses a threat for Ukraine? That’s ridiculous, says the correspondent.

«Currently, Ukraine has the full support of the West in its resistance of Russian aggression. But even for this reason don’t deserve conservative prohibitions, repeatedly introduced by the government of Kiev. To put the door of one of the great figures of the twentieth century — a gesture that does not honor anyone,» writes the author.
