Moscow denounces Zelenskyy’s calls to ban Russian travellers from going to West

WorldRussiaMoscow denounces Zelenskyy's calls to ban Russian travellers from going to West
Russia has denounced the proposal by the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, to ban all Russian travellers from going to the West, saying the measure would be unfeasible and counterproductive.
Ukrainian President Zelenskyy called on Western nations to shut their bodies to all Russian nationals- regardless of their stance on their nation’s invasion of Ukraine, ahead of anticipated referendums that could see captured Ukrainian territories join Moscow.
Anti-war Russians slammed Zelenskyy’s proposal, alerting it could backfire and consolidate Putin’s support base.
The Kremlin has also criticized the Ukrainian leader’s calls as “off-the-scale irrationality.”
“Any attempts to isolate Russians or Russia is a process that has no prospects,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, warning that Zelensky could “sooner or later” begin losing support in Europe.
Former President of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev in his recent inflammatory comments, have compared Zelenskyy to Adolf Hitler.
Medvedev wrote in an English-language tweet, “The chief clown of Ukraine suggested holding the whole population of Russia responsible.”
Medvedev said, “It was Adolf Hitler who last tried to apply such ideas to people as a whole. Any questions remaining about the Ukrainian regime’s nature?”
The government of the United States has threatened additional sanctions on Russia if the planned referendums in the Ukrainian region of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, which explains it as a sham votes, are carried out.
 Leaders of EU nations sharing land borders with Moscow have stepped up their own calls for European Union governments to stop issuing visas to Russians in recent days.
The Kremlin has repeatedly claimed that it invaded Ukraine to defend itself from “fascists”, which it baselessly says have taken over pro-Western Kyiv’s government, despite Zelensky’s Jewish heritage.
