14 Chinese citizens sent back to Moscow by Estonian border guards ({{commentsTotal}})


Officials of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board (PPA) discovered 14 Chinese citizens at Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport on Thursday who did not have the right to enter the country and sent them back to Moscow.

At 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, 14 Chinese citizens arrived at Tallinn Airport on a flight from Moscow, reported PPA spokespeople. The Chinese citizens did not have a confirmed purpose for their trip or the necessary documents, and their statements regarding the purported purpose of their trip were deemed untrustworthy.

The six men, five women, two boys and one girl were not allowed to enter the country, and their French visas were declared null and void.

The Chinese travelers left Estonia on an 8:40 p.m. flight back to Moscow.
