Newsline: Russia’s top diplomat pledges to bar entry for people from “unfriendly” nations

Russia said on Monday it was preparing to restrict entry into Russia for nationals of “unfriendly” countries, which include Britain, all European Union states and the United States. “A draft presidential decree is being developed on retaliatory visa measures in response to the unfriendly actions of a number of foreign states,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in televised remarks. “This act will introduce a number of restrictions on entry into Russia.” (https://news.yahoo.com/russia-bar-entry-people-growing-152450701.html) Russia’s top diplomat provided no elaboration on the precise measures being developed. After the West piled unprecedented sanctions on Moscow following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to send troops into pro-Western Ukraine, Russia expanded the list of what it calls “unfriendly” countries. They now include the United States, Australia, Canada, Britain, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, all EU member states and several others.
