Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu said that next week the sanctions will affect the Schengen visas issued by the republic to Russian citizens, the publication Delfi reports.
It is specified that visas will remain valid, but Russians will not be able to cross the border of the republic.
Nevertheless, exceptions will remain valid for those working in the field of diplomacy, the Russians, whose work is related to international transportation, persons, whose arrival is associated with humanitarian reasons, persons who visit relatives living in Estonia, persons with the right of free movement in the European Union.
It is specified that those persons who do not fall under the exceptions will not be allowed to enter Estonia.
