Latvia rules out giving humanitarian visas to Russians fleeing Putin's mobilization

MADRID, 21 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Government of Latvia has clarified that it will not issue any humanitarian visa for Russian citizens who want to escape the "partial mobilization" announced this week by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics has defended on Twitter the travel restrictions that came into force on Monday and, for now, Latvia will limit itself to consulting with other allies on possible "joint actions" following Putin's announcement.

Rinkevics has appealed to "security reasons" to justify an extraordinary reception of reservists who do not want to join the Russian Armed Forces, although he has also admitted that the risk of a military threat to Latvia remains "low".
