Russia bans 144 ministers, parliamentarians, and public figures from Baltic countries
On Thursday, The Russian Foreign Ministry announced that 144 Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia citizens have been barred from entering Moscow. The newly blacklisted by Russia are Ministers, parliament members, public figures, and journalists of the three countries, Xinhua news agency quoted the Ministry as saying in a statement.
The names of the targeted citizens were however not revealed.
The Ministry said the move was a response to what it called active lobbying by the three Baltic republics for more sanctions against Russia and to their “interference in our internal affairs, inciting Russophobic sentiments“.
Last year, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania began restricting the entry of Russian citizens travelling from Russia and Belarus in response to what Moscow calls its “special military operation” in Ukraine.

West thinking on erasing Russia is akin to Iran thinking to erase Israel !!
The very thought is repulsive & unhealthy
European countries to see their own independent thinking & future rather than toeing America
Russia is still a peaceful country than democratic USA
Goat cannot keep on fencing its border, fearing Lion / Tiger, & starve itself to death in its own fence.
The news is obviously not very encouraging from the West. Destroying Russia militarily was and is never going to be possible. The unprecedented sanctions imposed on Russia were supposed to destroy the Russian economy. They set back the western economies while the Russians remained unscratched. Initially the western brands disappeared from the markets, but soon reappeared with different names, basically because they were manufactured in China. The obsolete and due to expire ammunition have been exhausted from both sides destroying only Ukraine including the Russian held part. The clown goes on somersaulting like drunk monkey encouraged by the west.
