Pro-Russian journalist Graham Phillips was detained at Heathrow on suspicion of terrorism

Graham Phillips is Russia’s and Putin’s propagandist working in Donbas, and making fake news about Eastern Ukraine. Graham Phillips is English-speaking British blogger and journalist who is currently collaborating with the Russian media, including RT (“Russia Today” that is famous as propaganda outlet for the Russian government).

First time Phillips was detained by Security Service of Ukraine at a checkpoint near Mariupol in May 2014, and received a 3 year ban from entering the country but he violated the law and illegally returned to help terrorists.

On 2015 March 4, 2015 border police detained Graham Phillips at Heathrow (London, England, United Kingdom) and questioned under Schedule 7 (Terrorism Act 2000) for 4 hours about his work in pro-Russian terrorist illegal organization Novorosiya. This time he was released without any charges.

Earlier this year, on February 18, 2015, the British Foreign Office strongly recommended Graham Phillips to leave Eastern Ukraine and warned against all travels to the Crimea and the Donetsk and Luhansk regions:

«We have been alerted to a number of social media updates that have caused some to raise questions about your presence in Ukraine in a journalistic capacity. Particular things that have raised concerns include being photographed while wearing military uniforms, separatist insignia, or holding firearms. We are very concerned that you may be putting yourself in danger through these types of activities which could be seen as a blurring of the line between journalism and active involvement in a conflict». — the official letter from the British Foreign Office says.
