Latest news Ukraine

Finland does not want to become a transit country for Russian citizens accessing the rest of Europe, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Pekka Haavisto said. Therefore, the country will only accept around 100 tourist visa applications from Russian citizens, only on Mondays, and only in four cities: St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, Murmansk and Moscow.
Haavisto will attend an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Prague where the ministers are expected to discuss the EU’s common policy on visas.
