a visa ban for all Russians would lack the necessary support

VIENNA (Reuters) – European Union foreign ministers meeting later this week are unlikely to unanimously endorse a visa ban for all Russians, as it would be necessary to kick-start such a ban. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told Austrian ORF TV on Sunday. .

“I don’t think cutting off the relationship with the Russian civilian population will help and I don’t think this idea will have the necessary unanimity,” Borrell, who chairs meetings of EU foreign ministers, told national broadcaster.

“I think we have to review the way some Russians get a visa, certainly the oligarchs don’t. We have to be more selective. But I’m not in favor of stopping giving visas to all Russians.”
