KIEV, December 05, 18:53 /ITAR-TASS/. Western countries tend to use the visa issue as a tool to manipulate post-Soviet countries, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday on the sidelines of a ministerial meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
“In the humanitarian sphere, for instance, we have undertaken to ensure free movement and liberalize the visa regime,” he said. “These liabilities are not realized. Expanding the Schengen zone, the European Union uses the visa-free regime as a “carrot” for countries, which are yet outside this zone. As a matter of fact, the European Union is guided by political considerations but not by the actual readiness of this of that country to be allowed to use the free movement regime.
