The Foreign Ministry said that Moscow, after the entry into force of the 11th package of sanctions, expanded the list of EU representatives who are banned from entering Russia.
“In response to these unfriendly actions, the Russian side has significantly expanded the list of representatives of European institutions and EU member states who, in accordance with the Federal Law No. 114—FZ of August 15, 1996 on the Procedure for Leaving the Russian Federation and Entering the Russian Federation, are prohibited from entering the territory of our state,” the agency writes.
“The restrictions are also extended to EU parliamentarians promoting a confrontational agenda with Russia,” the ministry added.
The Russian stop list includes employees of law enforcement agencies, state and commercial organizations of EU member states, as well as individuals who are involved in providing military assistance to Kiev. Restrictive measures will also affect representatives of European structures responsible for imposing sanctions against Russia and trying to undermine Moscow’s relations with other states.
