Russia: Statement by the Spokesperson on travel restrictions against representatives of EU institutions and of the EU Member States

28.01.2022
Brussels

The European Union deplores the decision by Russian authorities, announced on Friday, to ban an unknown number of representatives of EU Member States and institutions from entry into Russia.

This decision lacks any legal justification and transparency and will meet an appropriate response. With it, Russia continues to fuel a climate of tensions in Europe instead of contributing to de-escalation.
