The members of the France-based “Babel Caucase” Caravan, which is currently in Azerbaijan, have now been refused entry to the territory of Russia. On May 4 the Caravan’s activities were forbidden throughout Russia, and now the country’s military authorities have imposed a complete ban. The Caravan’s 54 members had obtained all the necessary visas and permits in advance after informing the Russian embassy in Paris of the programme and route of the project. Permission for entry to Chechnya was not obtained.
