Foreign ministers of European Union member states are unlikely to agree at a council this week to impose a complete ban on issuing passport visas to all citizens of Russia without exception, a decision that would require unanimity, High Representative Giuseppe Borrell discounted. speaking to Austria’s ÖRF TV network yesterday Sunday.

“I think we need to review the way visas are given to some Russians, certainly not to oligarchs. We need to be more selective. But I’m not in favor of stopping giving visas to all Russians” without exception, added the head of European diplomacy.
