The state Duma adopted in the third final reading the law, which provides for the possible prohibition of entry to Russia for foreigners, if the Russian competent authority issued a decision to freeze their funds or property in the framework of the legislation on combating the financing of terrorism.

The document introduces amendments to article 26 «On procedure of exit from the Russian Federation and entry to Russian Federation», which envisages the possibility of the decision not to allow the entry of the foreign citizen or the person without citizenship in Russia.

The law proposes to ban entry to Russia for foreign citizen or stateless person in case if he participates in the activities of the entity included in the list of organizations and physical persons concerning which there is information about their involvement in extremist activities or terrorism.

The ban on entry can also be applied in case of acceptance of interagency coordinating body performing functions on counteraction to financing of terrorism, the decision on freezing (blocking) money or other property of that person or in the presence of an enforceable court decision on suspension of operations on Bank accounts and other operations with monetary funds or other property of the person prior to the cancellation of the relevant decision.
