Letter: UK snubs Russians

Sir: It is not only football supporters ("Russian fans cry foul at visa chaos", 12 June) who are suffering from our treatment of Russians wanting to visit the UK. It is starting to sour Anglo-Russian relations.

Russians are mystified by the way that we claim to have welcomed a democratic Russia in the international community yet seem to treat individual Russians with contempt.

If our "freedom" turns out to be hollow, we should not be surprised if some prefer to vote for national pride.
