MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. Republican US Senator from Wisconsin Ron Johnson never applied for a Russian visa, and he is on Russia’s ‘stop list’, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Department told TASS on Tuesday.
"It is called ‘manipulating information.’ He is on the stop list as a response to the inclusion of Russian representatives there, which he knew about for a long time. He never applied for a visa but painted everything as if he had been denied after submitting an application," the ministry stressed.
Earlier, on Monday, the GOP senator claimed that he was denied an entry visa to Russia. Previously, the lawmaker initiated and backed some anti-Russian bills.
