MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. No plans for the introduction of Soviet-style 'exit' visas for the Russians going abroad have ever been discussed in Moscow, a high-rank source at the Russian Foreign Ministry told TASS on Friday.
"No doubt, members of parliament should voice their opinions on the problems of all sorts but in this case he (the State Duma deputy — TASS) refuted his own words," the source said. "In the first place, no plans for whatever 'exit visas' have ever been discussed and they can't be discussed."
Earlier the same day, the Duma deputy Vadim Solovyov said live on air of the Govorit Moskva radio Duma members were considering a possibility of exit visas for the Russians going to purchase tours to foreign countries. As he spoke to TASS later, Solovyov said the lower house was getting recommendations from the electorate and certain initiatives might be formulated on their basis.
