The Czech Parliament supported the "visa ban" of the EU for citizens of the Russian Federation.

"I have been advocating this for a long time. This should have been one of the first sanctions. It is absurd to support the killing of women and children in Ukraine, and then go to have fun in the EU and laugh at us, how stupid we are," the head of the foreign policy commented on the proposal to stop issuing visas. Committee of the Parliament Marek Jeniszek.

A number of senators and parliamentarians also agreed with the initiative.

And the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Policy, Defense and Security, Pavel Fisher, advocated thorough taxation of the property of Russians.

Let's remind, that Latvia can cancel visas to the Russians supporting the war against Ukraine. According to the head of state, not only Russians need to be punished for supporting the war. If Latvia's permanent residents acquire Russian Federation citizenship, then they should not be issued residence permits either. Levits believes this is a "security threat" to the country.
