This is how the Russian diplomat commented on the attempts of a number of European countries to stop or restrict the issuance of visas to Russian citizens of all categories, as well as the idea to cancel the validity of existing long-term residence permits.

He called this policy pure Russophobia, xenophobia and neo-Nazism.

“We cannot rule out the full-scale adoption of such discriminatory decisions both at the EU level and by individual states, even in the absence of a pan-European consensus”– said the diplomat.
