“We strongly urge the acting High Commissioner and relevant special procedures to publicly condemn these discriminatory and barbaric practices, and treaty body experts to take them into account when considering the human rights situation in these countries,” RIA Novosti reports Eremin’s words.

He added that Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia have been purposefully taking measures to maintain the Russophobic course of their states for many years.

Earlier, the decision of the authorities of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland to impose a ban on the entry of Russian citizens with Schengen visas issued in other EU states came into force.

As Artyom Turov, a member of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots, noted in an interview with RT, a number of European countries are competing for the right to “do little dirty tricks” on Russia.

According to him, "the Baltic states are very active here."
