DW News published this video item, entitled “European countries mull barring Russian tourists | DW News” – below is their description.

Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine has sparked discussions on whether there should be broader consequences for all Russian citizens. Some EU countries want to bar them from traveling into the bloc for shopping and holidays. From September, Finland plans to significantly cut the number of tourist visas it usually issues to Russians. DW traveled to one small border town to see what effect this is likely to have.
