VIENNA, June 3. /TASS/. Moscow has no plans to send to the United States and Canada the lists of citizens barred from entering Russia as there is no need in this, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has said.
"Everything what needed to be made public, was made public in due time," Ryabkov said.
"The Canadian colleagues, whose names were unveiled, then spoke in their mass media that it was almost an award to be included in the Russian lists. Let them wear this ‘decoration’ further. We are glad that we could have done them a favor," he said.
"We are not going to return to this issue, we are not trying to overblow a kind of a political piece out of this, as life will arrange everything back to order," the diplomat said.
Moscow has introduced a confidential blacklist for 89 European nationals to the European Union. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the travel bans targeted those European politicians and military leaders who actively supported the February 2014 state coup in Ukraine.
