The restriction on Russian citizens who left their homeland after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine should be temporary, since they retained Russian citizenship. This was stated by State Duma deputy from United Russia Oleg Morozov in his telegram channel.
“The restriction should be temporary, as these people retain Russian citizenship. The corresponding order can be issued by the Ministry of Justice on the basis of a proposal from the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation,” Morozov wrote. He recalled that now “many great European powers, such as Bulgaria, Finland, Latvia initiate a ban on the issuance of any visas to Russian citizens.” According to him, the time has come to “move towards them!”.
Earlier, a State Duma deputy from the United Russia faction, Sultan Khamzaev, proposed to ban entry to Russia for those actors and businessmen who left the country after the start of a special operation in Ukraine. According to him, at such a time it is necessary to unite to strengthen the Russian Federation.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a special operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine. The head of state stressed that the protection of the citizens of Donbass is the main task of the special operation.
