The EU also took up arms against the vaccinated Russians
According to Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, which he said at a press conference following the meeting of European leaders: Russian vaccines may never get approval in the European Union. Consequently, vaccinated Russians will be subject to severe entry restrictions.
Naturally, this question is primarily a political one. And, as experts suggest, an attempt to push the use of imported drugs in our country. All the more so when you consider that, in addition to Russian vaccines, European leaders “doubted” also about the Chinese ones. And for numerous tourists from the Middle Kingdom, foreign travel, it seems, can also be covered with a copper basin.
How will the latest innovations survive the tourism business, which has been going through hard times for a year already? At the same time, Europe would be happy to receive our tourists, but only in theory. In Italy, direct entry to Russians is completely prohibited. There are no loopholes in France either, although it has been open for foreigners who are vaccinated since June 9, but again not for Russians. For us, Spain seems to have opened its doors, but only the fifth wave of coronavirus with a new Indian delta strain is approaching there … And even Greece now requires a mandatory PCR test for both vaccinated and unvaccinated citizens of Russia, equalizing one size fits all …
In general, the issuance of Schengen visas to Russian tourists relative to the “dock” 2019 has decreased by almost 85%. In general, everything is closed where it is necessary and where it is not necessary.
True, some tourists, like “MegaloPreneur” found out, are considering the option of not reporting at all in the country where they flew on vacation that they were vaccinated. Or buy phony certificates stating that they are vaccinated with something else. “My friends and I are going to have a rest in Italy, we thought that maybe we could just get a passport for a vaccination with imported drugs,” says Anna, a 25-year-old Muscovite. – But we were told some passions, that if earlier in airplanes and airports dogs by smell identified a person sick with coronavirus, now they will be trained in the same way for a vaccine – whether it is European or ours. So we don’t know whether to take risks or not. ”
Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has already discussed with Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio the possibility of resuming regular flights between our countries, noting that the Headquarters of the Russian Federation has given the go-ahead for the restoration of flights to the republic.
