The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, Edgars Rinkēvičs, has passed a decision on including 35 citizens of the Russian Federation who have supported Russia’s aggression in Ukraine in the list of personae non gratae in the Republic of Latvia.

Pursuant to the decision taken in accordance with Section 61, Paragraph two of the Immigration Law, those persons will be prohibited from entry to Latvia for an indefinite period of time.

Latvia condemns in the strongest terms the unprovoked and unjustified war unleashed by Russia on Ukraine, which has been going on for more than a year and in which, because of the brutality of the Russian armed forces, Ukrainian civilians and soldiers have been losing their lives every day. Support for atrocities perpetrated by the Kremlin regime means complicity with the crimes committed; therefore, the entry of such persons into Latvia is not permissible.
