When entering Latvia, Russian citizens are required to condemn the government of the Russian Federation
The Russian embassy in Latvia said that Russians entering Latvian territory are being forced to denounce the Russian authorities, which is a blatant demand.

"In particular, blatant demands are placed on them to sign a certain statement condemning the Russian authorities. In case of refusal to do this, as practice shows, entry can not only be denied, but also blacklisted", - RBC quotes the words of a representative of the Russian diplomatic mission.

From September 19, Latvia will restrict the entry of Russians into the European Union through its border "for security reasons".

After the Baltic countries, with the support of Poland, failed to achieve a complete ban on the entry of Russian citizens into the EU, on September 8, Riga, Vilnius, Warsaw and Tallinn agreed to introduce appropriate restrictions at the national level.
