The Russian Deputy Minister of Health and State Secretary, Oleg Salagai, has been denied entry to Denmark.

This is reported by the Russian Embassy in Denmark on its website.

According to the embassy, Oleg Salagai was on his way to a regional event of the World Health Organization (WHO) taking place in Copenhagen from September 12th to 14th when he was denied entry at Copenhagen Airport.

“The Danish authorities grossly violated their obligation to ensure unobstructed access to events in Denmark for official representatives of WHO member countries, including Russia, given that WHO’s regional office for Europe is located in Copenhagen,” writes the embassy, which now intends to demand an explanation and an apology from the Danish authorities.
