Deported from Ukraine with 3 years ban
Last Saturday I travelled from Berlin to Kiev to play a show at Forsage Dance Club, but unfortunatly I was refused by the National Security Service at the Ukraine immigration, because I was flying from Moscow to Crimea some time before, which is cosidered illegal by Ukraine law. It seemed that the investigation was already well prepared before my arrival. I don´t have immigrations stamps from my immigration to Yalta and the Security Service had already photos from me playing a show in Yalta saved on their mobile phones as a proof for my illegal act. But, when I was invited to play there and when the promoters travel agency bought me the flight tickets, I got no information about any illegal issues unfortunatly.
So I am really sorry that I got banned now for three years (it could have been five years as well) and that I had to leave the country (departure area) asap.
Thanks to the Forsage team for beeing outside of the airport to help the situation during all hours.
And many thanks to all promoters and fans and friends in Kiew for supporting me in the last years. I hope that you don´t forget about me and that I will see you all in Kiew again, in 2020. Much love from Berlin, may the peace be with us and our music communities.
PS.: I recommend all my colleagues to avoid this Ukraine immigration situatuion. I could see that the Ukraine Immigration Service is very well organised with their database.
