Effective next Monday, September 12th.

All schengen type c visas are ruled out. Exceptions: visiting closest relatives, funerals, EU citizenship, long term visa of EU country.

Well, it really sucks. If Finland follows suit, the only way to get to europe without an Istanbul layover would be via northern territories of Norway.

I am sorry bro. Hopefully this will incite protests in mainland Russia to get your freedoms back.

Too little of a reason to give a fuck about if there are huge fines even for anti-war protests.

Istanbul is cheaper, like $300 one way. Belgrade is $500 one way, and it should be booked a month in advance.

Budapest won't work because EU issued sanctions on air travel, and Hungary obliged.

Speaking about humanitarian visas.

So a prominent russian "dissident" lawyer who has millions of subscribers in YT told a story of one guy who was denied a humanitarian visa from France, Greece AND Poland despite him being supporter of Navalny and having spent ±2 weeks in jail (short term, after a rally).

So the lawyer said Poland did stamp a visa for him but only after the lawyer himself wrote a letter to the polish embassy, advocating for him. And it's like a well known guy.

The situation with humanitarian visas is truly fucked, it's almost impossible to get one.

it may be bcs lots of people from Putin's circle also want to flee, for whatever purpose, so they are being extra careful.

You can't go, I don't like Putin, let me in.

EU doesn't want tourists from Russia anymore, but remains thoroughly interested in skilled workers. it's naturally difficult to cooperate with Russian authorities on that. so what could be the trick/solution?

Nothing has changed much. Poland had been already closed. Three Baltic countries are only relevant for people who have assets in those countries. Four countries that had been primary gateways to EU - Finland, Serbia, UAE and Turkey still open and afaik have no intention of joining russophobic madness.

To be fair, Estonia was the primary gateway to EU for St. Petersburg and Lithuania (through Minsk) for Moscow. The only Russia-EU train (to Kaliningrad) goes through Lithuania and it will be impossible to go through there.

Estonia had been open for just a couple of months because of Covid. So had been Finland. People did manage with Turkey, UAE and Serbia until pretty much July. So, nothing new.

Russian borders are open. What kind of cooperation with Russian authorities do you expect?
