Former US envoy proposes to introduce entry tax for Russians

    WORLD  10 August 2022 - 19:02

    Former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul has proposed to introduce a special tax for Russians who want to enter Western countries.

    The ex-diplomat wrote about this on Twitter.

    “Every citizen of Russia who obtains a visa to travel to a free country must pay a tax or an additional fee. The funds received from these special taxes or fees should then be transferred to the Fund for the Reconstruction of Ukraine,” the ex-ambassador proposed the initiative against the backdrop of a discussion of EU sanctions to ban the issuance of Schengen visas to Russians.
