Take note – story published 1 year and 3 months ago

The Latvian Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, Edgars Rinkēvičs, has made a decision to include 35 more citizens of the Russian Federation who have supported Russia’s aggression in Ukraine on the already-lengthy list of personae non gratae as far as the Republic of Latvia is concerned.

Pursuant to the decision taken in accordance with Section 61, Paragraph two of the Immigration Law, those persons will be prohibited from entry to Latvia for an indefinite period of time, the Ministry said in a release.

"Latvia condemns in the strongest terms the unprovoked and unjustified war unleashed by Russia on Ukraine, which has been going on for more than a year and in which, because of the brutality of the Russian armed forces, Ukrainian civilians and soldiers have been losing their lives every day. Support for atrocities perpetrated by the Kremlin regime means complicity with the crimes committed; therefore, the entry of such persons into Latvia is not permissible," the release said.

The list includes various performers, television presenters and political commentators. 

The following persons have been put on the rejection list:

  1. Yaroslav DRONOV
  2. Ruslan OSTASHKO
