  • Russia blacklists 89 EU officials, 20 from Baltics
    the Ukraine conflict and made it public immediately Rinkevics mentioned the incident involving the Latvian European Parliament member Sandra Kalniete when she was en route to Moscow for the funeral of the murdered Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov earlier this year only to be turned away at the border There are more individuals who have been banned but who are not on this list including a few researchers and NGO representatives from different EU member states Anke Schmidt Feltzmann a researcher in the Europe programme at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs in Stockholm tells The Baltic Times Although this is another example of Russia playing tit for tat with the EU Schmidt Feltzmann points out there are fundamental differences that should not be ignored While the EU has gathered a lengthy paper trail to support its blacklist of Russian officials and allows those on the list to appeal against the EU s decision in court those on the Russian list have not been granted any such privilege so far and the reasoning behind their featuring on the Russian blacklist is far from clear Those on the Russian blacklist are being accused among other things of having instigated a revolution in Ukraine It is difficult to see how this could hold up in an independent court Schmidt Feltzmann adds According to information obtained by LETA the Latvian politicians now openly barred from Russia are Unity leader and the chairwoman of the Saeima National Security Committee Solvita Aboltina as well as four European Parliament Members Sandra Kalniete Artis Pabriks Inese Vaidere and Roberts Zile Yet Russia s blacklist is a self harming measure according to Estonian Foreign Minister Keit Pentus Rosimannus This is yet another unfriendly step by Russia but we cannot say that such behaviour by the leaders of Russia would surprise rather that list is one in a string of several other unfriendly steps It is clear that by establishing such a list Russia is the loser not the people who are in the list said Pentus Rosimannus who had summoned the Russian Ambassador to discuss this Estonians in the list include Justice Minister Urmas Reinsalu European Parliament member Tunne Kelam former Foreign Minister Kristiina Ojuland Defence Forces Commander in Chief Lt Gen Riho Terras his deputy Brigadier General Arthur Tiganik head of the Security Police Arnold Sinisalu and Defence League chief Meelis Kiili Badge of Pride Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite is unfazed by the blacklisting of her country s politicians believing that those who have been blacklisted should wear it as a badge of pride As far as I know the list is made of the most famous European politicians the president told reporters on June 1 I can only rejoice at the fact that even my advisor is on the same list with such famous names as for example former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt It is in fact great appreciation The Lithuanian officials on the list include the Lithuanian Conservative party s founding father Vytautas Landsbergis
