(QHA) -

The Ukrainian Security Service reports the detention of two journalists of Russian TV channels in Kyiv, who will be deported from the country on Wednesday for "anti-Ukrainian propaganda."

"The Security Service detained two journalists of the Russian TV channels NTV and ORT in Kyiv. The decision has been made to reduce the time of their stay in Ukraine. They will be sent to Russia today, and their entry to Ukraine would further be banned for five years," Security Service spokesperson Olena Hitlianska told journalists on Wednesday.

The Security Service's actions have been prompted by "anti-Ukrainian propaganda spread by these journalists," she said.
