Visits “should be a privilege, not a right”

As a response to “Russia’s use of chemical weapons” in Britain, all NATO countries should, in solidarity, expel the Russian ambassadors. This opinion was expressed by the researcher of the analytical center of the American Enterprise Institute Michael Rubin.

“The US could close the Russian consulates. If there is a need for dialogue, one can always turn to the Russian Ambassador to the UN, “he said, the Voice of America reports.

He also called for the abolition of visas for all citizens of the Russian Federation, connected with the government of the country. According to him, visits to the United States, Britain and the European Union “should be a privilege, not a right.”

“If Russia wants to be isolated even more by introducing its own visa restrictions, its economy will suffer losses,” Rubin said.

“Russia has attacked one of the closest US allies and must pay for it,” a former Pentagon official added.

Previously, NATO reported that it helps London to investigate the case in Salisbury, where a former agent of the GRU, Sergei Skripal, was poisoned with an unknown substance.
