Premier of Finland: it is unfair that Russians can travel to Europe as tourists

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin favours limiting the issuance of tourist visas to Russians at the European level.

Yle writes about it.

It is wrong that at a time when Russia is waging an aggressive, brutal, aggressive war in Europe, Russians can live a normal life, travel around Europe, be tourists. This is wrong.

Sanna Marin

She hopes the EU countries will solve this issue together, because you can cross the Finnish border on a visa from any Schengen country.

According to the head of the consular service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, Jussi Tanner, after lifting coronavirus restrictions, the border crossing by Russians with Finland increased by 10-30 % compared to spring and early summer.

The Finnish Foreign Ministry said it was ready to intervene if the majority of Russians travel to other countries with Finnish Schengen visas.

A Russian citizen’s application for a new Finnish visa may be rejected if the previous visa issued by Finland was used only for transit to another country.
