Vladimir Putin signed Tuesday a law relieving citizens in Kaliningrad from paying duties on the issuance of passports for foreign travel
President Vladimir Putin signed Tuesday a law relieving citizens in Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea, from paying duties on the issuance of passports for foreign travel, the Kremlin press service said. People in Kaliningrad need foreign passports to travel to Russia via Lithuania, which introduced a new transit regulation on January 1, 2004. Previously Russians had been able to travel to the "mainland" without any additional documents, but Lithuania sought the introduction of visas after it joined the European Union. A compromise was reached in the form of a facilitated travel document. According to the press service, the president signed the law taking into account the need for foreign passports of most people in Kaliningrad and an increase in state duties on foreign passports in Russia starting January 1, 2006. In addition, the press service said that Putin had signed a number of other laws, including one on fines for drinking beer and other alcoholic beverages in public, and another on the state service of the federal treasury.
