EU to tighten travel rules for Russians, but no visa ban | Policy
PRAGUE (AP) — European Union countries agreed on Wednesday to make it harder for Russian citizens to enter the 27-nation bloc, but they failed to reach a consensus on imposing a outright ban on tourists in response to Russia’s war on Ukraine.
During the talks in the Czech Republic, EU foreign ministers were desperate to show their unity and punish President Vladimir Putin for starting the war more than six months ago. Yet they could not iron out differences over whether Russian citizens, some of whom may have opposed the invasion, should also pay the price.
