In particular, we are talking about difficulties in obtaining visas, said Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Evgeny Ivanov.

According to him, Washington complicates the procedure for obtaining visas for ordinary passports to Russian employees of contracting institutions that serve foreign agencies in Russia.

As an example, Ivanov cited computer specialists: Russian diplomatic missions cannot fix the problem, because the Americans do not issue documents to employees. He stated that such employees "are not carriers of classified information."

In addition, Russians in the UK and Canada have difficulties in obtaining work visas.

“The current situation, which is of a systemic nature, leads to a violation of the deadline for the execution of state contracts, and in some cases jeopardizes the normal functioning of Russian foreign agencies,” Ivanov emphasized.

He added that due to problems with visas, the departments of the Russian Foreign Ministry lacked employees.

As ForumDaily wrote earlier:

  • In September 2019, ten members of the Russian delegation, including a member of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev, did not receive on time American visas to participate in the UN General Assembly and did not fly to the United States. The delegation was to accompany Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs accused the United States of default through the UN and "unleashing a visa war," and the head of the department, Sergei Lavrov, called the refusal to issue visas a shame.
  • October 7, two UN committees dealing with legal issues and disarmament and international security issues, suspended work due to visa problems for the Russian delegation.
  • December 4, USA did not issue visas to the Russian delegation to participate in an international audit conference, comments were posted on the website of the Russian embassy in Washington. “The United States has unleashed a real visa war against the Russians. Non-issuance of visas has become another illegal weapon of struggle, ”the diplomatic service said.
  • December 12 court in Russia punished a delegation from the USA for violation of the visa regime. According to Russian media, employees of the University of Buffalo who arrived in Ryazan at the invitation of "Business Russia" were charged with teaching activities, although they have tourist visas.
