MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. A deputy speaker of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, Nikolai Levichev, said on Friday he hails Russia’s decision to suspend visa-free regime with Turkey.
"We hail the decision to suspend the visa-free travel regime," he told TASS. Moreover, he said, he hoped Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) would suspend flights to that country. "Obviously, our citizens cannot feel safe in Turkey," he said.
"Over the days that elapsed after the crash of our plane, Turkey has extended no apologies for this act of aggression. Moreover, it has been fanning tensions," he said.
After a meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem on Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia had taken a decision to suspend the visa-free travel regime with Turkey. He said this decision would come into force from January 1, 2016.
