American actor, Morgan Freeman has been banned from Russia, along with US president Joe Biden, vice president Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, and Mark Zuckerberg.
Freeman was named in a list of more than 900 Americans banned from gaining access to the country. For being “anti-Russian” released by the Russian government.
This is coming after his role in the movie Bruce Almighty. Freeman plays God and he has been banned for criticising Putin for playing god.
However, the reason for his ban is his participation in the creation of a video. Which slams the Russian government’s involvement in the United States’ 2016 presidential election. Freeman directed and narrated the video, which was released in 2017. Actor Rob Reiner also participated in the video. He was also banned.
The list read,
“In the context of responding to the constantly imposed anti-Russian sanctions by the United States. Also in connection with incoming requests about the personal composition of our national ‘stop list’. The Russian Foreign Ministry publishes a list of American citizens who are permanently banned from entering the Russian Federation.”
“We emphasize that the hostile actions taken by Washington. Which boomerang against the United States itself, will continue to receive a proper rebuff. Russian counter-sanctions are forced and aimed at forcing the ruling American regime. Which is trying to impose a neo-colonial “rules-based world order” on the rest of the world, to change its behavior, and recognise new geopolitical realities.”
