MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Latvia’s step to put two Russian scientists on the list of those, who are banned entry to Latvia and other countries of the Schengen zone, is a discriminatory measure, a diplomatic source in the information and press department of the Russian Foreign Ministry told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The ministry informed that the Latvian ambassador in Russia was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Monday and he was informed over “the use of the visa ban practice to Russian historians and researchers.”
“This is an obvious discriminatory measure, which does not meet the Latvian statements that the country is ready to develop the constructive dialogue on historical problems,” the diplomatic source said.
“We take these measures as an unfriendly step. Russia retains the right to take adequate retaliatory measures,” the Russian diplomatic source said.
The Latvian Foreign Ministry stated earlier on March 3 about the decision to declare the director of the Historical Memory Foundation Alexander Dyukov and the head of the research programs Vladimir Simindey as persona non grata, banned the entry to Latvia for them and put them on the list of those people, who were banned the entry in other countries of the Schengen zone.
