MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Kremlin has refused to comment on reports alleging that a German conservative lawmaker was not let into Russia.
Russia president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Monday he would refrain from commenting on the situation with German lawmaker Karl-Georg Wellman and referred them to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Earlier on Monday, Germany’s Foreign Ministry said that Russia’s refusal to allow Wellman enter Russia was "incomprehensible and unacceptable." "Germany expects the refusal to allow him in to be lifted," it said.
Wellman, who leads a German-Ukrainian parliamentary group, arrived in Moscow late on Sunday but was stopped at the passport control desk. After returning to Germany, he told the Focus magazine passport control officers had told him he had no right to enter Russia till November 2019. He said no reasons had been provided. He also said he planned to have "official meetings" in Russia.
The German Foreign Ministry said Germany had issued a protest to Russia’s ambassador in Berlin over the incident.
