الاتحاد الأوروبي يشدد قواعد السفر على الروس

September 1, 2022 - وافقت دول الاتحاد الأوروبي على إجراءات تجعل الأمر أكثر كلفة وتعقيداً على الروس لدخول الكتلة المكونة من 27 دولة، لكنها لم تصل إلى حد إقرار حظر تام على التأشيرات بسبب غزو موسكو لأوكرانيا.

The EU was too divided to agree at this stage on a blanket ban, and also left unclear what unilateral measures Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Finland, which have land borders with Russia, could take to restrict access to Russian visitors, Reuters said.

EU ministers also tasked the European Commission with looking into possible ways to tackle the estimated 12 million visas issued to Russian citizens that are still in circulation, according to Euronews.

According to data from Frontex, the EU’s border control agency, almost a million Russians have legally entered the 27-member bloc via land borders since the start of the Ukraine war in February, mostly through Finland and the Baltic states.
