On December 26, the Interdepartmental Commission to Consider Russian Citizens’ Complaints Regarding Restrictions on Their Right to Leave the Russian Federation gathered at the Russian Foreign Ministry for its 12th meeting of the year.

The Commission examined three applications from Russian citizens who had earlier been denied foreign travel passports allowing them to travel abroad, due to their knowledge of state secrets.

In two of the cases, the Commission’s requests to the heads of relevant organisations resulted in the lifting of temporary restrictions imposed on the applicants.

As for the third case, the Commission decided to postpone hearings until a future meeting.

The next meeting of the Commission is scheduled for January 24, 2018.
