Rossiya Segodnya functionary not allowed to disembark in Tallinn ({{commentsTotal}})

Marina Perekrestova, the deputy head of Rossiya Segodnya’s multimedia department, was refused entry to Estonia by the Police and Border Guard today.

Perekrestova flew to Tallinn this morning by Aeroflot flight from Moscow, but was not allowed to set foot on the Estonian soil.

The Estonian authorities have not released an official comment yet as to why the Rossiya Segodnya employee was refused entry.

The Russian Embassy in Tallinn has announced that they will request an explanation from the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Rossiya Segodnya is an international news agency founded by a decree of the Russian President in 2013.

Note from the editor: the original article said that it was Russia Today (RT) journalist who was refused entry to Estonia. This was not correct, as Russia Today and Rossiya Segodnya are not the same media outlet. ERR News apologises for the mistake.
