“Based on their own commitments, they simply have no right to limit completely the granting of visas to any group of people, this step will kill any idea of democracy, liberalism, freedom and, as they call it, ‘zero tolerance’ to xenophobia, nationalism and so on,” the diplomat wrote on Telegram.

Zakharova’s statements respond to a comment made on Monday by Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, who sees as wrong that Russian citizens can “live a normal life” and travel to Europe while Moscow conducts military actions in Ukraine.

Her Estonian counterpart, Kaja Kallas wrote on her Twitter account, “It is time to end tourism from Russia now.” “Stop issuing tourist visas to Russians. Visiting Europe is a privilege, not a human right,” the politician stated.

Since the military operation on Ukrainian territory, several countries have condemned the action taken by Moscow on February 24 to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, in the face of which they have activated several batteries of individual and sectoral sanctions to raise the cost of the conflict for the Kremlin.
