Russian journalist and Channel One correspondent Aleksandra Cherepnina arrived in Moscow, Wednesday, after being deported from Kiev by Ukrainian security forces where she was accused of falsifying a news story and taking part in 'anti-Ukrainian activity'.

The news report broadcast a week ago covering the issue of Ukrainian nationalism included a video of a young girl screaming anti-Russian slogans. After arriving in Moscow Cherepnina said that "I was accused of shooting this video and posting it on the internet under a fake name in order to use it later in the story and to conduct anti-Ukrainian activity."

According to Ukrainian security services, Cherepnina has been banned from entering Ukraine for the next three years. Cherepnina said "they took me to the airport and did not leave me for a moment until all the passengers were declared on board", adding that "they escorted me to the door of the plane".
