Recall that in May the Russian border service began to cancel visas for Finnish citizens who rode in the Russian Federation not in tourist purposes, and specifically for gasoline at gas stations and other goods that are cheaper for them. Since May 11, several dozen Finnish citizens have not been allowed into the country. Most often, the Finns were turned back at the checkpoint of Vaalimaa (Torfyanovka) and Nuijamaa (Cowberry).
