Canada Does Not Want Russians /Russia Accuses Canada Of Violating Visa-Granting Criteria

Posted by Info on 30/10/2010

Russian diplomats have accused the Canadian authorities of going beyond the framework of the internationally accepted principles of visa-granting.

The accusations have been triggered by a new form that Russians seeking a Canadian visa have been told to fill in.
Russian citizens are specifically requested to provide information on their military service, indicate the number of their military unit, its area of deployment, as well as the name of the commander.

Under the Russian law the information is a state secret, and divulging such information is punishable by a prison term of up to 7 years.
Moscow threatened with retaliatory moves against Ottawa.
