Visas for Russians to Europe and USA: easing or tightening?

Italy and France have expressed readiness to give to the Russian citizens re-entry visas for more long period.
      Spokesman of French diplomatic mission Thomas Buffin has announced such intention, Guido Desanctis, press officer of Italian embassy in Russia has also made a statement like this. He said that the first visa will be issued for 90 days, the second one - for 1-2 years, depending on the applicant's documents. Spain was also making statements about easing of visa regime with Russia. However, nobody of them nominated specific dates.
      In spite of optimistic tone of negotiations about Shengen visas for Russians, the reality demonstrates growing difficulties. USA have modified application form, and now questionary occupies 12 pages instead of 2. French consulate has changed standardt for photo: background now should be grey instaed of white having not announced this. Consulate of Finland in St. Petersburg will be re-organized, and price of visa will be increased. Switzerland has increased prices for phone calls to consulate necessary for putting on waiting list for filing documents. It is impossible to bring papers for applying for visa not by appointment.
      And everybody wish all of it was small confusions on the way to the rapprochement.
