EU slams Russia's 'arbitrary and unjustified' travel ban
May 31 , 2015
The EU has slammed Russia’s entry blacklist comprising scores of prominent Europeans including politicians, military leaders and officials.
Those on the banned-from-entering-Russia list include senior figures such as Uwe Corsepius, the EU council general-secretary, and Nick Clegg, the former UK deputy prime minister.
The EU said the Russian government had shared the list after multiple requests by diplomats. Calling the list totally “arbitrary and unjustified", the EU said it had no information on the “legal basis, criteria and process” behind the ban.
