It was reported earlier that Fred Durst sent a letter to Crimean authorities stating his willingness to take up residence in Crimea. On behalf of the Crimean authorities, Dmitry Polonsky, Vice Premier of the Crimean Government, promised to help make the musician’s dream come true. According to Durst, he would be happy to have a ‘nice-looking’ house in Crimea.

In view of this, Ukraine’s Security Service has banned Fred Durst from entering Ukraine for five years in the interests of guaranteeing the security of the region. A document to this effect signed by Yelena Gitlyanskaya, a spokesperson for the SSU, has been published on the Internet.

According to Durst’s previous statements, he ‘wouldn’t mind getting a Russian passport’.
