Only a toilet and a blanket: a Russian tourist who broke the rules was put in her place at Warsaw airport
A Russian citizen was forced to wait at Warsaw Airport for four days, not allowed to leave the terminal. The Russian woman was traveling from Cyprus to the Kaliningrad region: in Poland, she was supposed to change planes and take a bus.
However, having violated the rules, the woman could not even leave the building. This was reported by propaganda media.
Russians are not allowed to visit Poland as tourists, but they are allowed to cross the border if they have a Schengen visa and a number of other documents. But there is one caveat: only those Russian citizens who have special reasons, such as a work invitation, can enter the country through the external border of the Schengen zone. As for entry from other Schengen states, no valid reasons are required.
The Russian woman chose the first option without hesitation, so she was forced to reap the rewards of her decisions. At the passport control, the border guards succinctly put the woman in her place, saying that she had to return to Paphos. The next return flight was scheduled for four days later.
According to the "lucky lady," her passport was taken away and she was transferred to the departure area. An airline representative brought her dinner: pasta with minced meat and two bottles of water. Later, a new shift took over, so everyone forgot about the Russian woman. "No one cares about me," she commented.
An all-inclusive was waiting for the tourist - a toilet and a blanket to sit on metal chairs in the waiting area. There were no shops or cafes in the "corner", so the Russian woman had to make do with what she had. The woman appealed to the Russian Embassy in Poland, but, according to her, they could not help.
