A well orchestrated media campaign around Elena Vishchur (Boyko) in which everyone in Russia’s media, from the ultra-liberal Echo of Moscow to the Director of the federal media company Russia Today Dmitry Kiselev, came together in their attacks against Russia’s national security agencies and the court for expelling from Russia a Ukrainian woman Vishchur (Boyko).
Director General of the MIA “Russia Today” Dmitry Kiselev said that he was ready to offer a job to a “journalist” Yelena Boyko, who was being expelled from Russia, after the Preobrazhensky Court of Moscow made a decision on the deportation of Elena Vishchur (Boyko) in connection with the violation of the rules of stay in Russia.
“By the example of our colleague Kirill Vyshinsky, we know how severely Poroshenko’s regime cracks down on opposition journalists. Under these conditions, expelling Elena Boyko from us … is unprincipled, ” the RIA Novosti quotes Kiselev.
Well, as a general statement about Poroshenko’s regime what Kiselev is reported saying is true, but as the FSB and the Moscow district court made their cases, there is more to Mrs. Vishchur than meets the eye. Much more…
She is called a “journalist,” but I am yet to find anything she wrote. She became notorious after being invited to the talk shows on the federal prime time TV like Russia1. During her performances she comes across as a stand-up comedian, superficial and boisterous, who uses personal insults as talking points. She claims to be a good friend of a former minister of Poroshenko’s government Oleh Tyahnybok, who is being investigated by the SK Investigative Committee for war crimes committed on the territory of Russia. The SK opened a case against the leader of the Ukrainian far-right party “Freedom” and one of the leaders of “Euromaidan»
The investigative Committee of Russia (SKR) opened a criminal case against several Ukrainian citizens involved, according to the investigation, in the murders of Russian soldiers in Chechnya in the 1990s. Among the suspects-the leader of the Ukrainian far-right party “Freedom” Oleg Tyagnibok, one of the leaders of the so-called “Euromaidan”.
Oleh Yaroslavovych Tyahnybok is a former member of the Verkhovna Rada and the leader of the nationalist far-right Svoboda political party. Previously he was elected councilman of the Lviv Oblast Council.
In Moscow district court, as reported by the Interfax news agency, she pleaded guilty to multiple violations of the migratory legislation of the Russian Federation, as to working without a permit on a tourist visa. Apparently, she admitted she used different travel agencies to extend her stay in Russia while working of the central TV and receiving payments in a scheme that is clearly illegal.
She claims her need to stay in Russia because of Kiev authority’s criminal investigation against her. She doesn’t specify possible criminal charges levied against her. There is no prove, as far as I can tell, that such investigation was initiated. In the court, no evidence of persecution of Boyko was presented.
She also claimed in court that back in 2016 she filed for a political asylum in Russia, but was denied by the FSB. After the FSB rejected her application, she claims that “other” state agencies rejected her, also.
Which is odd, considering that Russia had done everything in the past to help Ukrainian journalists persecuted and jailed by Poroshenko’s regime, including prisoners exchange.
Apparently, it wasn’t just a political asylum that the FSB rejected, but Elena Boiko was banned from entering the country back in 2016.
A woman owns several Ukrainian passports in different names and a Polish card. It’s obvious that she had entered the territory of Russia using one of her passports in a name different from her public name in an obvious attempt of deception, because Russian national security had placed a ban on her entering the county, and she knew that!
If she were afraid to remain in Ukraine, she could easily move to the EU with her Polish citizenship, let’s keep this in mind.
The reason for her being banned to enter the territory of Russia is Article 27.1 of The Federal law on the order of departure from the Russian Federation and entry on the territory of the Russian Federation ” of 15.08.1996 N 114-FZ St 27 (edition of 11.10.2018)
1) it is necessary for the purpose of ensuring defense capability or safety of the state, or public order, or protection of health of the population, except for the cases provided by the paragraph 2.3 of article 11 of the Federal law of March 30, 1995 N 38-FZ “about the prevention of distribution in the Russian Federation of the disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV infection)”;
So, back in 2016, the FSB had determined that Elena Boiko (Boyko, Vishchur) was a threat to the national security and the safety of the state.
Here is an entire Article 27:
Federal Law No. 7-FZ of January 10, 2003 reworded Article 27 of this Federal Law
Article 27. A foreign citizen or a stateless person shall be refused a permission to enter in the Russian Federation if:
1) this is necessary for the purpose of ensuring the defensive capability or security of the state or public order or protecting the health of the general public;
2) during his/her previous stay in the Russian Federation the foreign citizen or stateless person was subjected to administrative expulsion from the territory of the Russian Federation or deportation – for five years after the date of the administrative expulsion out of the Russian Federation or the deportation;
3) the foreign citizen or the stateless person has an unremoved or unexpunged conviction for a grave or especially grave crime committed in the territory of the Russian Federation or abroad, which is deemed such a crime under federal law ;
4) the foreign citizen or the stateless person did not file the documents required for the purposes of visa processing under the legislation of the Russian Federation – until they are filed;
5) the foreign citizen or the stateless person did not present a medical insurance policy effective in the territory of the Russian Federation – until the time it is presented, except for (on the basis of reciprocity) for the personnel of diplomatic missions and consular institutions of foreign states, the personnel of international organisations, members of the families of said persons and other categories of foreign citizens;
6) while applying for a visa at a check-point on the State Border of the Russian Federation the foreign citizen or the stateless person could not confirm that s/he has funds for living in the territory of the Russian Federation and subsequently leaving the Russian Federation or present guarantees in the manner established by the Government of the Russian Federation that such funds would be provided to him/her;
See the Regulations on the Confirmation by a Foreign Citizen or a Stateless Person of the Existence of Funds for Residence on the Territory of the Russian Federation and Departure from the Russian Federation or the Presentation of a Guarantee of the Provision of Such Funds in the Application for a Visa or at a Checkpoint on the State Border of the Russian Federation , approved by Decision of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 241 of April 24, 2003
See the Regulations for Granting Guarantees for the Material, Medical and Housing Provision of Foreign Citizens and of Stateless Persons for the Period of Their Stay in the Russian Federation , approved by Decision of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 167 of March 23, 2003
7) a decision has been adopted in respect of the foreign citizen or the stateless person to deem his/her stay (residence) in the Russian Federation undesirable.
If a foreign citizen’s or stateless person’s entry into the Russian Federation has been subjected to restrictions on the grounds set out in Sub-items 2 and 5 of Part 1 of the present article the border control bodies and the federal executive governmental body in charge of internal affairs or a territorial body thereof in the cases established by the Government of the Russian Federation shall enter an appropriate annotation in the foreign citizen’s or stateless person’s personal identity document.
There is a point of the same law that speaks about the need to have a valid ID for the entry to the country.
Federal Law No. 7-FZ of January 10, 2003 amended Article 24 of this Federal Law . The amendments shall come into force upon the expiry of three months after the official publication of the said Federal Law
Article 24. Foreign citizens may enter and exit from the Russian Federation provided they have a visa issued on the basis of valid documents of identification that are recognized as such by the Russian Federation , unless otherwise stipulated by international treaties of the Russian Federation.
Consider all of these while judging the media hysteria about this obvious Ukro-Polish spy, and a personal involvement of Kiselev, who offers a spy, who has been deemed dangerous for the national security by the FSB, “other” state agencies, and by the court, to work for one of the biggest news agencies in the world.
I believe that we are at a point where we need to demand elections of all heads of the media companies in Russia, regardless of their ownership.
The media is out of control.
Elena Boyko Vishur is from Lvov, the breeding ground of the Galician Zombies. More of who they are and on their role in the WWII, an illegal division of the USSR, and the current cold civil war against president Trump see North America is a land run by Galician zombies
