SANTIAGO, Chile — President Augusto Pinochet's military government has barred a visit by the internationally acclaimed Moscow Circus, which planned to perform in Chile next month for the first time in 20 years.

Describing the circus as an "instrument of progaganda," the Foreign Ministry said Thursday the troupe has been refused entry visas because of continuing political attacks on Pinochet by Radio Moscow.
