Patriarch Kirill has been banned from entering Estonia. The country has put him on the national “Magnitsky List”, said the head of the Estonian Foreign Ministry Markus Tsahkna in Twtter.
In addition to the patriarch, the list included another 57 people, including nine people involved in the criminal case against the politician Vladimir Kara-Murza.
“Supporters of Russia’s abhorrent actions in Ukraine, as well as against its own people, are not welcome in Estonia”, Tsahkna wrote.
In April 2023, the Czech Republic imposed sanctions against Patriarch Kirill, explaining that he was justifying the war in Ukraine. Earlier, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church was also included in the sanctions lists of the UK, Canada, Lithuania and Ukraine.
