The EU countries also do what they can do best on this question: act inconsistently. A clear line is needed, even if it may have some exceptions, says Miodrag Soric.
The discussion is just taking a journey: may Russian citizens be allowed to go on vacation as tourists in Spain or France , while Moscow's army murdered thousands of women and children in Ukraine? Under no circumstances, more and more people in the EU.
In fact, the Schengen countries should refuse all Russians until further tourist visa. At least holds parts of Ukraine for as long as . So far, millions of Russians have supported this war or pretend that they had nothing to do with the weapons. It is important to them to make it clear that they are undesirable in Europe until further notice. For many Moscow liters, it may be normal to enjoy life in cafes and restaurants while their compatriots bathe their hands in blood. This is not normal in the civilized world.

secure: to refuse all Russians tourist visa for the Schengen area is at least in some cases unjust. Because it also affects innocent people: people who do not support Russia's war but do not have the courage to protest against it. But such "collateral damage" is difficult to prevent.
also not the fact that some Russians will then seek closeness to the Kremlin. Shall they. The bathing vacation on the Cote d'Azur or the shopping weekend on the Champs Élysées should no longer exist. What remains will be a feeling of discomfort, the "Auf-der-anllagank sitzen". That is exactly what is wanted. Because in times of war, Russians can no longer be treated like a normal people, as well as the Germans between 1939 and 1945 and the first years afterwards.

for an end to the tourist visa for Russians also speak security aspects. So the Russian Vadim Krasikov traveled to Berlin with such a visa in order to shoot an asylum seeker from Georgia in cold blood -uniform rules of all Schengen states makes Russia, as German foreign politicians stated, a "terrorist". And it is important to protect Europe from.
Nevertheless, selected people from Russia should continue to be given the opportunity to enter European soil. Because Germany and Europe have a demographic problem. Countless companies have been looking for specialists for years. In recent years, millions of Russians, especially young and educated people, have been relocated. This has to be promoted further. Russian students or scientists who want to continue their training or work in the West should also be allowed to continue; Just like Russian opposition figures. In a limited frame, visits to relatives must continue to be possible.

is only important that the governments of all Schengen countries agree on uniform rules; Also to cancel these sanctions again when there is a permanent peace in Ukraine. A majority of Germans have been supporting heavy weapons to Ukraine for months. A minority, on the other hand, is - mostly with the reference to Germany's history. In particular, they would welcoming the Russians no longer give tourist visa. Because this form of sanctions quickly has an effect, but does not require human life.
A stop for tourist visa could not ignore even Russia's same media. At first they would certainly comment maliciously. Perhaps ask the question whether other western states should not follow this example. At some point they would start calling the Russians advantages, staying at home. Just like back then, in the USSR. And that Moscow's cafés and restaurants would get an additional shine in this way.
