Moscow restaurants impose "entry ban" on Obama
MOSCOW. March 22 (Interfax) - Moscow restaurants are introducing sanctions against U.S. President Barack Obama.
Notices saying an "entry ban" has been imposed on Obama have been put up at the entrances to Dolma restaurants in central Moscow, an Interfax correspondent reported.
The manager of a Dolma restaurant, Lasha Churgulia, said that, "the ban only applies to Obama for now." "Whether or not the list will be extended depends on the United States' and on the European Union's further moves," he added
News about restaurants' "sanctions" earlier arrived from other Russian cities.
