Stop issuing tourist visas to Russians. Visiting #Europe is a privilege, not a human right. Air travel from RU is shut down. It means while Schengen countries issue visas, neighbours to Russia carry the burden (FI, EE, LV – sole access points). Time to end tourism from Russia now- Kaja Kallas (@kajakallas) August 9, 2022
“Stop issuing tourist visas to Russians. Visiting Europe is a privilege, not a human right. Air travel from Russia is closed, which means that if Schengen countries issue visas, it is Russia’s neighbors who bear the burden,” Prime Minister Kallas expounds in her tweet, alluding to the fact that, unable to travel by air, Russians visit those countries closest to their borders, such as Finland and Estonia itself.
