Russia, in sanctions retaliation, bars entry to some Japanese citizens

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry said on Friday it had handed Japan’s ambassador in Moscow a list of Japanese citizens barred from entering Russia.

The ministry said in a statement that the list was a response to visa restrictions that Japan had imposed on a number of Russian citizens. The ministry did not say which Japanese citizens are on the barred list.
