The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Poland, Mariusz Kaminski, announced on his Twitter that he had signed a decree on toughening restrictions on the entry of Russian citizens into the republic.
"… I signed a decree tightening the restriction on entry to Poland for Russian citizens", — he said.
According to him, this is the result of joint agreements between Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
Earlier, BAGNET reported that Estonia, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia have banned the entry of Russian citizens, including those with Schengen visas issued by third countries.
On September 12, the European Union suspended the agreement with Russia on a simplified visa regime. Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands have stopped accepting documents from Russian tourists.
On September 9 of this year, the European Commission recommended the EU not to issue multiple Schengen visas with a long term to Russians actions, as well as to increase the terms for issuing visas to citizens of the Russian Federation up to a maximum of 45 days for thorough checks.
