Another name added to Latvia's entry blacklist

On July 5, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs announced the addition of another name to Latvia's list of personae non gratae, in accordance with Section 61 Paragraph 2 of the Immigration Law.

Rinkēvičs said on Twitter that Russian pro-Kremlin propagandist and supporter of the Russian war in Ukraine Savva Fedoseev would be added to the entry blacklist. The persons on the list are banned from entering Latvia for an indefinite period of time.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the Foreign Affairs Ministry has been actively supplementing Latvia's entry blacklist with names of persons who have expressed their active support for the decision of the President of Russia to carry out the invasion of Ukraine.

"Latvia condemns in the strongest terms the unprovoked and unjustified war unleashed by Russia on Ukraine, where, as the result of brutal actions by Russia’s armed forces, Ukrainian civilians and soldiers are 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 Ministry has stated.
