The Moldovan law enforcement officers detained Aleksey Kazannikov and Natalia Kalysheva, Russian journalists, at a vehicle checkpoint at the Chisinau airport. The reason for detention of the journalists working for LiveNews agency is the lack of accreditation.

Besides, when checking documents, the Moldovan border guards revealed that Natalia Kalysheva was previously deported from Ukraine for provocative coverage of events in the country.

The journalist received the documents forbidding entry to the territory of Moldova. The passports of detained journalists will be returned to them by representatives of airline in Moscow.
