EU suspends visa facilitation agreement with Russia


EU suspends visa facilitation agreement with Russia

Brussels, Sep 10 (Prensa Latina) As of Monday, September 12, the visa facilitation agreement with Russia will cease to operate in the European Union, so citizens from that country must pay 80 euros to enter the EU.

An official communiqué from the bloc pointed out, among other requirements, that Russian citizens must present additional documentary evidence, which will expand the visa processing period, and more restrictive rules will be implemented to issue multiple-entry visas.

The new agreement, already adopted by several Baltic countries on Thursday, adds to a wide range of coercive measures against Russia, implemented after Moscow launched a special military operation in the Donbas region.

Since the first sanctions were implemented, Russia warned about its boomerang effect, while President Vladimir Putin informed that the deployment of troops in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics responded to a request from those governments.

The Donbas territories suffered Kiev’s military siege for eight years under the passive gaze of the same actors who are now judging Moscow, according to the Kremlin.
