More than a hundred more Russians blacklisted by Latvia

On 13 May 2022, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, Edgars Rinkēvičs, passed a decision on including another 102 more citizens of the Russian Federation in the list of personae non gratae in accordance with Section 61, Paragraph two of the Immigration Law.

"Latvia continues to ban persons supporting the Kremlin regime from entry into Latvia, and will consistently do that in future," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in announcing the travel bans.

People on the list will be prohibited from entering Latvia for an indefinite period. The said persons, mainly Russian cultural figures, 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 explained.

The following persons have been included in the persona non grata list. So if you're a Russian entertainer, please check if you are on it:
