The deputy head of the Latvian diplomatic mission in Moscow was summoned to the Foreign Ministry following an unfriendly decision of the Latvian Government to impose an entry ban on 49 Russians from the so-called Magnitsky List. She was given a list of openly anti-Russia citizens of Latvia, who advocate harsher sanctions against Russia and the continued discrimination against the Russian-speaking minority, and was informed that these persons had been banned from entering the Russian Federation.

The Latvian official was told that the Russian “stop list” is not final and that more names could be added to it in response to anti-Russia steps.
