From October 25, the an entry ban for Russian citizens with short-term Schengen visas, said the country's Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky.

Russian rockets fall on playgrounds and people who are just getting to work, at the same time at the Czech International Airport every day register about 200 citizens of the Russian Federation. This explanation of the reasons for the ban was given by the minister.

The ban applies to Russians with visas issued by any EU country. Now, Russian citizens who want to visit the Czech Republic for the purpose of tourism, sports or culture will be denied entry.

The Czech Republic followed the example of the Baltic countries, Poland and Finland, which closed the borders for tourists from Russia earlier.< /p>

In early autumn, the European Union suspended the agreement on the simplified issuance of visas to Russians. The visa fee has increased from 35 to 80 euros, the time for issuing entry documents has increased, and additional documents have been required from those wishing to come to Europe. Moreover, the rules for issuing multiple-entry visas have also become stricter.

In accordance with the recommendations of the European Commission, citizens of the Russian Federation without good reasons for staying in the EU are given a lower priority in the consideration of the application. EU countries were also advised to carefully consider applications from citizens of the Russian Federation and not to issue multiple-entry visas if there is no certainty that the entry conditions will be met.
