LONDON, August 5. /TASS/. The Russian embassy in London has issued recommendation to the Russian citizens arriving in Britain to report the incidents that might occur at the immigration offices upon arrival.
The recommendation followed a yet another in a chain of cases of unfair treatment of arriving Russian citizens by the staff of the British immigration service.
"A Russian woman told about an incident she had found herself in at a London airport a short while ago," a spokesman told TASS. "The immigration authorities stopped her before crossing the border. The passport control officials were keen to get some supplementary information on the objectives of her visit and they also asked her whether she spoke Arabic or had travelled to Arab countries."
"Our compatriot said she had been stopped because of her oriental look," the spokesman said. "Before being let into the country she was kept on the border for about an hour."
"The embassy recommends the Russian citizens, who find themselves in similar situations, to contact the duty consuls at the embassy by an emergency telephone line if they find their position really problematic," the embassy said.
"There can be no guarantees the British side will not practice the similar exercises against the Russian citizens at the points of entry in the future as an instrument of psychological pressure and a tool of a political game in the context of the current status of our bilateral relations," it said.
