Russia gives Latvia list of citizens banned from entry

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday it had given Latvia a list of Latvian citizens it has banned from entering Russia for their “Russophobic” views and calls to tighten sanctions against Russia.

The entry ban is retaliation for a similar move by Latvia with regard to 49 Russian citizens, the ministry said in a statement on its website.
