Visa ban for Russians: Klimkin recalled that “tourists” poisoned Violinists and killed Europeans
Klimkin on visa ban for Russians to Europe/Channel 24 collage
Russia should be isolated from the international community. Banning visas for Russians is a great solution that Ukraine should continue to work with partners on.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in 2014-2019 Pavlo Klimkin told Channel 24 about this. According to him, the attitude of European countries towards issuing visas to Russians is gradually changing , but this process will not be so fast and instant.
If not ban the issuance of visas, then it is necessary to complicate the detention procedure
As Klimkin notes, Russians may say that they don't like the war, but they are still involved in it. Therefore, whether to let infidels into the EU and allow them to enjoy the benefits of civilization is a question not only political, but also moral.
On the other hand, Russians in the EU are a matter of national security for all states. Infidel intelligence services tried to poison the Violinists in the UK, organized explosions in ammunition depots in the Czech Republic in 2014, killed a Chechen commander in Germany, etc.
I believe that the abolition of visas for Russians is another brick that should lower the iron curtain. This is an important part of the story that we must complete, – said Klimkin.
Such a decision cannot be quick. However, 5 months ago, Germany was not at all ready to supply weapons to Ukraine. And now she finally arrives in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Therefore, you need to continue working on it – and everything will change. A similar process should be launched for other states – the USA, Canada, Japan, etc.
In any case, if it is not possible to agree on a complete ban on issuing visas, then the procedure for obtaining should seriously complicate the procedure< /strong> visas. So that every Russian is carefully checked, as if under a microscope.
Recall that on August 18, Estonia stopped letting Russians with Schengen visas that it issued for them. Now about 25 thousand Russians will not be able to get into Estonia. However, there are small exceptions for those who will go to their relatives.
