Biden, Morgan Freeman, Mark Zuckerberg, others banned from entering Russia

President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Hollywood actor, Morgan Freeman, others banned from entering Russia.

Russia on Monday unveiled a list of nearly 1,000 Americans permanently banned from visiting, including President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris — and even Hollywood star Morgan Freeman.

Oscar-winning actor Freeman, 84 — whose films include “Se7en,” “The Shawshank Redemption” and Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven” — was number 840 on the list of 963 published on Saturday.

Most of the others on the list accused of inciting “Russophobia” were leading US politicians and outspoken journalists, as well as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.


The Kremlin listed Freeman as “a well-known film actor who in September 2017 recorded a video message  accusing Russia of conspiring against the United States and calling for a fight against our country.”

It was referring to a Committee to Investigate Russia clip in which the actor accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of secretly using “cyber warfare to attack democracies around the world,” especially his “sworn enemy, the United States.”

“We have been attacked,” Freeman said at the time. “We are at war.”

The White House previously mocked the Russian sanctions by quipping that nobody was planning a holiday to Moscow and suggesting Vladimir Putin’s regime had targeted the wrong Joe Biden.
