Russia has expelled American journalist and author David Satter, a former Moscow correspondent for The Financial Times and a longtime critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Satter told followers on Twitter.

Satter, the author of three books on Russia and the former Soviet Union, had been working as an adviser to the U.S. broadcasters Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty since September.

Satter told CNN he had gone to the Ukrainian capital Kiev to exchange his existing visa for a correspondent’s visa when he was told his application had been rejected, on the grounds that his presence in Russia was “undesirable.”

Satter is a former Moscow correspondent for The Financial Times and a fellow at Johns Hopkins University and the Hudson Institute, a U.S.-based think tank. He has written extensively on the history of Russia in the post-Soviet era
