Russian officials and business people no longer have privileged access to the EU.

Today we put forward guidelines to help EU countries in applying the partial suspension of the Visa Facilitation Agreement with Russia.

The suspension does not affect ordinary Russian citizens.

Bringing UDHR as an point for those who obviously neglected every form of human rights makes me sick.

Furthermore these measures are made against potential criminals and those directly supporting them. Sending someone to prison also violates his/her/it’s human rights. But it is right to do so, to protect public.
These sanctions are basically the same (in my opinion)

@luc @EU_Commission

Every form?

If you defend the Human Rights is just more important against those that neglect them.

If not you are as neglecting Human Rights as you think the other is.

It seems that since 2014 (coup d'état and prohibition of some political parties ) there is no art 21 UDHR government in Ukraine.

And bombing your own population is also not UDHR compliant.

And I will denounce ANY UDHR committed such as election stolen in Russia (cde too).

Will you?

@pthenq1 ¿los jugadores de tenis y futbolistas no son "ordinary Russian citizens"? Muy interesante el hilo de comunicados de la UE que pusiste. Constatan que van por la revancha de esto
