Since January 27 2016, Turkish citizens have to apply for a visa to enter Russia. However, there are some exceptions: Turkish citizens with a temporary or permanent Russian residence permit don’t have to apply for a visa. This also applies to Turkish citizens who were sent out to Russia to work for consular and diplomatic representative offices.
This measure was introduced due to the political tension between Turkey and Russia. In this context further sanctions for Turkish organizations in Russia were implemented.
Further information to the sanctions can be found here.
