Russia will tighten the rules of entry for journalists from “unfriendly” countries, as stated by the Deputy Foreign Minister Yevgeny Ivanov.
“We are complicating it, by no means canceling it, but we are complicating obtaining visas for journalists from unfriendly countries,” Ivanov said at a meeting of the State Duma of the Russian Federation on Wednesday, April 20.
According to him, Russia accepts an asymmetric response.
“The EU and the countries that have joined them have made it more difficult for entrepreneurs and the business community from the Russian Federation to obtain visas,” the deputy minister explained.
According to him, journalists from unfriendly countries will receive single-entry visas, and the visa fee is also increasing for them.
