Russian women mistaken for prostitutes and banned from entering South Korea
The women had all the necessary papers with them - including itinerary, booking confirmation and return ticket.
Employees of Seoul’s airport have mistaken Russian women for prostitutes and have not let them in South Korea. The women were detained at the customs and taken to a sub-basement.
“They said all Russian women arrive in the country to work in a karaoke or as prostitutes. You don’t look like a tourist. Prove that you’re a tourist,” Tsargrad quotes Nadezhda Karpova as saying. One of the Russians managed to return to the motherland straight away. The rest had to spend from 1 day up to a week in the sub-basement.
The women had all the necessary papers with them - including itinerary, booking confirmation and return ticket, reports VSE42.RU. However, it was impossible to prove their innocence to the local authorities. Vice-President of the Russian branch of the International committee for defense of human rights Ivan Melnikov is reported to send a claim to the Embassy with a request to clarify the situation.
