But that has nothing to do with vacation or business trips from Russians to Europe.

"It must be guaranteed that Russian murderers and helpers of the state terror do not use Schengen-Visa," he said. Russia's neighboring states of Estonia and Latvia in the Baltic States have already tightened the industrial rules for Russians, Finland is also considering this. Germany and the EU Commission in Brussels reject a basic stop from tourist visa for Russians and Russians.

The Russian government has warned the United States against calling Moscow a "terrorist supporter". This could significantly damage bilateral diplomatic relationships or even bring them to a standstill, said Alexander Darchiev, head of the North America department in the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to the TASS news agency.

Washington would exceed a "Point of No Return" if the US Senate actually passed a law that Russia was excluded.
