Against the backdrop of Russia's aggression against Ukraine, it would be high time for Russians to decide what they want more: bite off pieces of Europe or chill in Europe? The governments of Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Estonia decided everything for two-faced tourists. From September 19, Russians will not be able to enter the territory of the above states, regardless of the state in which they received a Schengen visa.
"Do not come to Estonia with Schengen visas, you are not welcome here!" Urmas Reinsalu, foreign minister of Estonia.
Since the European Union has not yet come to a joint decision regarding the deprivation of Russians of Schengen visas, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Estonia agreed on a common measure for tourists from the aggressor country and declared "political will and firm intention". According to Reinsalu, all the Baltic countries will also join the 4 states' decision.
The Russians who own real estate in Estonia and Lithuania will not find shelter there: the states have launched the process of arresting the real estate of citizens of Russia and Belarus.
