Prime Minister of Poland advocates the termination of the issuance of visas to citizens of the Russian Federation

17:18 31 August Kyiv, Ukraine

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki called for the termination of the issuance of visas to Russian citizens, except for humanitarian ones.

 
He stated this on August 31 at a press conference in Copenhagen, PolskieRadio24 reports.

The head of the Polish government is confident that visa restrictions are "another and correct instrument of pressure on the Kremlin."
 
“I am convinced that water wears away a stone and our actions make sense. I do not remember that in 1943 any of the German tourists traveled, for example, to Great Britain or other countries of the free world for tourism purposes,” Morawiecki stressed.
 
According to him, today Russia is "an aggressor that kills civilians and commits terrible crimes in Ukraine."
 
"Therefore, Russian assets should be confiscated, and Russians should not receive non-humanitarian visas," the prime minister said and expressed hope that this postulate would be supported in the EU.
