MOSCOW, June 9. /TASS/. Germany is considering the possibility of abolishing visas for young people and students from Russia, Secretary of the State of the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth Ralf Kleindiek told reporters on Thursday.
"In Russia, young people often have to travel great distances to apply for a visa at a visa center," he said. "We thought whether it might be possible to take the advantage of digital opportunities to alleviate the situation."
"On the other hand, we have an opportunity to cancel visas for them altogether, because Russian young people are not as dangerous as our agencies dealing with security issues sometimes think," Kleindiek noted.
"As for the German-Russian youth exchange program, we must say it works well, but we are trying to expand it, let it grow and develop, as the number of participants in the German-Russian youth exchanges is falling," he added.
