·1-min read

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Wednesday there were no restrictions on Russians working in the United Kingdom after a Russian lawmaker said members of their delegation to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) had been denied visas.

Asked about Russian lawmaker Vladimir Dzhabarov's comments, a spokesperson for Britain's Home Office said: “There are currently no restrictions or limitations for Russian nationals to work in the UK on long-term work visas."

The spokesperson said Britain was prioritising applications from Ukrainians, and that applications for study, work and family visas were taking longer to process.
