An increasing number of Russians are coming to Bosnia and Herzegovina legally and seeking asylum from Croatia, the country’s border neighbour.
The statement from the Croatian Ministry of Interior stated that Russian citizens, who took advantage of the fact that Bosnia and Herzegovina did not provide a visa to Russia, came to the Croatian border and asked for asylum.
The statement noted that Russian citizens have sought asylum from Croatia to live in EU countries, “These Russians come to our borders and ask for international protection. Their applications are subject to the same process as citizens of other countries.” Data included.
In the statement issued by the Border Police of Bosnia and Herzegovina, it was noted that Russian citizens came to Bosnia and Herzegovina for tourism purposes, and after entering the country, they headed to the Croatian border.
On the other hand, it was reported that the European Union requested a visa application for Russian citizens from Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was granted candidate country status in December.
