Great Britain has no reason to punish Graham Phillips - UK Ambassador to Ukraine

Ambassador Judith Gough answered the letter of Natalya Galibarenko, Ambassador of Ukraine to the United Kingdom

The British embassy published the response at their Facebook page. Here is the translation from the Ukrainian language: 

"I saw the video of exchanging Ukrainian prisoners and, like Iryna Gerashchenko and Ulyana Suprun, was shocked with Graham Phillips' behavior concerning Volodymyr Zhemchugov. In my opinion, this is not journalism.

Many people called upon Great Britain to strip him of his passport. Mr. Phillips did not commit an offense in Great Britain that could be a reason for the British government to forbid him to leave the country. If he violated Ukrainian law, it is within the powers of Ukrainian authorities to decide on its actions in relation to Mr. Phillips."



On September 22, Ukrainian Ambassador to the United Kingdom Natalya Galibarenko demanded London stop the infamous propagandist Graham Philips.

Phillips' latest gaffe happened when he took part in the exchange of Ukrainian captives in so-called "gray zone". Propagandist started to insult and provoke Volodymyr Zhemchugov, severely ill (the imprisonment left him blind and armless). Phillips behaviour nearly wrecked the exchange operation.
