A similar decision was made after the recommendations of the European Commission were published on September 8 regarding a ban on the entry into the territory of the European Union of cars registered in Russia.
According to these recommendations, the sanctions imposed by the Council of the European Union against Russia in 2022 also apply to personal vehicles of Russian citizens with Russian registration numbers. Consequently, Russian citizens do not have the right to enter the territory of the European Union in their personal cars, even if this is done for tourism purposes and for a short period of time.
