On 7 June 2002, Günter Verheugen, Chris Patten and Antonio Vitorino, Members of the European Commission, send a letter to Josep Piqué i Camps, President-in-Office of the Council of the EU, in which they highlight the European Commission’s position on the crossing of EU Member States’ external borders by Russian citizens. They also discuss the agreement on behalf of Lithuania and Poland to implement the requirements of the EU acquis, and raise the question of the Russian stance on basic visa requirements for travel to and from Kaliningrad.
