Russia is not closed for UK journalist any more

British journalist Luke Harding, correspondent of Guardian in Moscow, expelled from Russia last week after he had reported on Wikileaks cables containing criticism of Russia's leadership has been allowed to return.
      In his sources, Russia was called a "virtual mafia state" and the Russian leaders were discredited there. Materials appeared when Harding was in London, but when he came to Moscow, he was not allowed to enter the country and berred back without explanations. Security official said "for you Russia is closed".
      However, Luke Harding has returned his acceditation and is back in Moscow from Saturday. It was also reported, that one of British Parliament deputees suggested to cancel visit of Sergey Lavrov to UK if the Russian authorities did not explain the reasons of Harding's exile.
      Tensions in relations between the UK and Russia have appeared since the 2006 murder of Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko in London.
