“Russians must be deprived of the right to cross international borders until they learn to respect them”
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba has called to ban Russian tourists from traveling to Europe in his article for Politico.
He stated that an overwhelming majority of Russians support the war in Ukraine and don’t even feel guilty about Russia’s aggression.
“Let’s take off the rose-colored glasses and wake up to the reality of Russian fascism. Russia won’t change until generations of Russians assume common responsibility and guilt for what their country has done,” noted Kuleba.
Kuleba highlighted that a visa ban for all Russians will also have a positive impact on European security.
“Russians pose an elevated risk of hate crimes and conflict, especially now, when they’re being brainwashed daily by aggressive propaganda. They’re already known for their notorious behavior at global resorts and touristic places. Turning them away will increase security and reduce crime,” he said.
