Russian customs reportedly denied dozens of #Turkey travellers of entry into Russia despite a visa waiver regime, citing security reasons
The tension created by the Russian fighter jet shot down in Syrian border has resulted in Turkish passengers being turned back at customs in Russia. According to CNN Turk information received from diplomatic sources has said that 40 passengers have travelled to Russia in the last two days, and have been turned back on the first flight back to Turkey despite the fact that there is a visa exemption policy that exists between the two countries.
According to the report, a number of passengers were taken into questioning by Russian intelligence and were sent back on flights back to Turkey citing security concerns. Some passengers claimed that frivolous reasons were given and were refused entry into the country.
