On May 17, the Foreign Ministry hosted this year’s fifth meeting of the Interdepartmental Commission to Consider Russian Citizens’ Complaints Regarding Restrictions on Their Right to Leave the Russian Federation, hereinafter referred to as Commission.

Meeting participants reviewed the appeals of seven Russian citizens who were earlier denied international passports to exit the Russian Federation because of their knowledge of state secrets.

After reviewing the above-mentioned appeals, Commission members noted that the decisions of managers of the concerned organisations to temporarily restrict the exit of applicants from the Russian Federation were justified.

The Commission is to hold its next meeting on June 28, 2017.
