Other options include the introduction of a visa regime or entry on biometric passports. Not excluded a complete ban on entry into Ukraine from the territory of Russia.
Later he explained to the Interfax-Ukraine agency that changing the order of entry / exit of persons into the territory of the country falls within the competence of the government. “The very procedure for traveling by citizens is regulated by an intergovernmental agreement, and accordingly it is in the government’s authority to change the agreement currently in place,” the Foreign Ministry spokesman added.
