Twitter user “Yumi (@zikifa) raged: “Russians hate NATO so much, but are okay to go to Italy – which is part or NATO, for holidays.”

“John Zhang” (@JohnZhangSV) commented: “I don’t understand it either. Western countries seem too nerdy and naïve in dealing with Putin’s regime and Xi’s CCP.

Another Twitter user, “Ian Kuah” (@IanKuah), questioned: “Is there not an EU travel ban on all Russian politicians? Or do the quisling Italians not enforce it?”
