VILNIUS (Reuters) – European Unions members Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Finland, which all share a border with Russia, may stop Russian tourists from entering their countries if the EU does not enact a union-wide ban, Lithuania’s Foreign Minister said on Tuesday.

“I have talked to ministers from all these countries… I don’t see many differences politically,” Gabrielius Landsbergis told reporters in Vilnius.

“Russian tourists shouldn’t be in the European Union… Their country is undertaking genocide,” he added.
