The Migration Department of the Police of St. Petersburg is going to expel the supporter of the Donetsk peoples republic for the opposition activities in Russia.

Together with her husband, Vorontsova participates in the activities of the opposition party “Other Russia”. This party is headed by writer Eduard Limonov, its former name – the National Bolshevik Party. In 2015, Vorontsova and her husband went to the Donetsk People’s Republic to support its struggle against the Kiev regime. As a result, the spouses got into the base of the site “Peacemaker”, which the Ukrainian fascists use to intimidate political opponents.
November 6, 2017 police detained Vorontsova for the taking part in “Other Russia” public event dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, although she only stood aside and photographed what was happening. After that, the migration department of the St. Petersburg police filed Vorontsova in court for administrative offenses. The court found Vorontsova guilty, after court’s decision police canceled the residence permit for Vorontsova and banned her entry to Russia for three years. The police did not take into account that Vorontsova is married to a Russian citizen, and the separation of the family is a violation of privacy according to the European Convention on Human Rights. The deportation of Vorontsova to Ukraine threatens her with imprisonment for complicity with the terrorist organization – up to 15 years in prison. The Kiev regime, in spite of the lack of a regulatory framework, regards the DPR as a terrorist organization.
