the Russians began a thicket to refuse entry to Israel because some of them started to use a visa to stay illegally to work in the country. In an interview with RBC said the charge d’affaires of Israel in Russia, Yakov the Shower.
“When this happens and the number of such people is above some planks, and that starts more attention to the people of this country. This is a normal phenomenon, both in Israel and in other countries,” – said the Shower.
According to him, the parties are now working to “all this took place without the rough edges”. In particular, Russia gave Israel a series of proposals, including that relate to cooperation between law enforcement agencies of the countries on illegal migration. In addition, the Russian side proposed to monitor the process at airports in Israel.
“In those cases when the Russian Embassy wrote to us with specific questions about specific people, were returned. In all cases, when we checked, it turned out that it was a good reason. And so we asked our Russian colleagues to participate and attend,” – said the Shower.
the fact that over the past year, Israel refused Rossenum entry about 6 thousand times, said the Russian Ambassador in the country Anatoly Viktorov. According to him, the Russians have repeatedly complained that they were not allowed to enter Israel “for the unclear reasons for them”. The situation diplomat called “abnormal” and noted that the growth of unjustified refusals on the entry of Russians and undermine the basis of tourism as well as cultural, educational and scientific ties between the countries.
Then in the Israeli foreign Ministry explained that along with “employment in tourism” is growing and the number of requests to the Russians for asylum. “This forces us to implement a more thorough check and sometimes have to refuse some Russian citizens entry into our country,” – said the representative of the press service of the Embassy of Israel in Russia Yana Kotlyar-Gal.
the Russian side, however, acts symmetrically. Israeli citizens in recent months, faced with unreasonably long inspections at airports, as a result, some refuse to cross the border. In December this issue was discussed at a meeting in the Israeli foreign Ministry. In the draft agreements proposed by the Israeli side, was to provide the Israelis on the Russian border the same conditions that exist in Israeli airports for the detained Russian tourists.
First of all, it is that Israelis questioned in a language they understand, and that all the documents that give them the signature was in Hebrew or English, not in Russian. Israel asked Russia to take into account that Russian tourists undergoing interrogation in Israeli airports can have access to all the facilities that is not respected in Russia.
