ST. PETERSBURG, October 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said on Wednesday that Russian passengers who arrive in countries of the European Union by regular flights might be freed from some of the visa procedures.
Before leaving Russia, such passengers undergo security checks, they have necessary documents, which means that some of procedures at their destination airports might be abolished, he said at a Russia-European Union aviation forum. The problem is coming to the fore as the passenger traffic from Russia to the European Union is increasing. Thus, the number of passengers from Russia has grown 100-fold since 2000.
Vice-president and EU commissioner responsible for transport Siim Kallas supported the idea and called on all the parties “to use every possibility to encourage passenger traffic between Russia and countries of the European Union.”
