Dutch parliament cancels trip to Russia after lawmaker denied entry - ANP

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch lawmakers on Tuesday cancelled a planned trip to Russia after one of them was denied entry to the country, Dutch news agency ANP reported.

Sjoerd Sjoerdsma, a lawmaker critical of Moscow, was blacklisted by the Kremlin, blocking his participation in the trip the politicians had planned to make in February, the Dutch Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
