Kremlin: EU visa restrictions on Russians are ‘ridiculous’

MOSCOW (Reuters): The Kremlin said on Thursday that a European Union decision to scrap a simplified visa regime for Russian tourists was “ridiculous” and bad news for Russian citizens.

In a conference call with reporters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also hinted that Russia was weighing possible retaliatory measures, saying the move would “make the situation more difficult for Europeans as well.”
