European Union: EU will suspend visa agreement with Russia, claimed the report
Even after 6 months of the Russo-Ukraine war, countries around the world are imposing sanctions on Russia. Meanwhile, EU member states are preparing to postpone the 2007 visa facilitation agreement with Russia over the Russo-Ukraine war. The Financial Times, citing three officials involved in the talks, said officials said EU foreign ministers would support the suspension at a two-day informal meeting in Prague on Tuesday and Wednesday.
These countries called for a complete ban
The report, citing officials participating in the talks, said it has not decided to restrict EU travel for Russian citizens, limit the amount of EU visas, or ban travel altogether. . However, the Czech Republic, Finland and Estonia have pushed for an EU-wide decision after imposing their own visa restrictions and calling for a complete ban on Russian nationals traveling.
warned about ban on tourist visa
On the contrary, the Commission and Germany have cautioned against banning tourist visas or refusing Russians to enter the bloc. At the same time, critics have raised humanitarian concerns as well. Russian airlines have already been banned from EU airspace as a result of several rounds of political and economic sanctions imposed by the European Union since the invasion of Ukraine in February
