No air tickets to Norilsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory, Siberia, will be sold to foreigners from November 25, said Russia's State Aviation Service. This city, according to a list of territories approved by the government, will be closed to foreign citizens. "The Norilsk administration, meeting on November 6, also decided that all foreign citizens from CIS and non-CIS countries /bar Belarus/ having no Russian citizenship should be evicted from the city," the service noted.

About 15,000 foreign citizens are currently residing in Norilsk.
