Esmu iekļāvusi ‘melnajā sarakstā’ vēl 41 ārvalstnieku. Šie cilvēki bijuši iesaistīti izlūkošanā vai atbalstījuši Krievijas ārpolitikas interešu sasniegšanu. Viņu starpā ir personas, kuras pauž atbalstu Krievijas militārajai agresijai pret Ukrainu.https://t.co/xH3YB4xhs6— Marija Golubeva (@MGolubeva_LV) April 27, 2022
