In Finland, a restriction on Russian entry into the country can be introduced at the level of national legislation. The corresponding proposal was made by the Chancellor of Justice Tuomas Peyusti, reports the Finnish news agency STT. “Finland should study and consider national sanctions legislation, which may also limit access to the country,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that a complete shutdown issuance of tourist visas Russians or a total ban on entry to the country for citizens of the Russian Federation would be against EU law. Meanwhile, Peyusti believes that the introduction of common limits for those who come from a particular country are possible in exceptional cases.

In particular, it would be possible to amend national legislation in this area if the government makes an appropriate proposal. At the same time, an EU-level decision would be most effective and easiest to implement in Finland, Peyusti believes.

Against the background of the Russian war against Ukraine, a number of Western countries have restricted the entry of Russian citizens. So Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Poland from September 19th introduced a ban on the entry of Russian touristsincluding those with Schengen visas issued by other states.
