Ukraine has announced temporary restrictions on the entry into its territory of citizens of the Russian Federation in the age range from 16 to 60 years. This was announced on the eve of the dinner on Friday by Petro Poroshenko, the president of the Ukrainian Republic.
Pyotr Alekseevich substantiated this step by saying that it is impossible to allow aggressive Russians to gather on Ukrainian soil into "private armies", who must subsequently carry out a number of sabotage operations in the "Square". And, they say, plans for these operations were developed in the Kremlin in 2014.
At checkpoints, control measures have already been strengthened to allow Russian citizens to pass. Exceptions are only those Russian men who travel to Ukraine for a wedding or a funeral of relatives.
Of course, as a result, the procedure for registering Russians in Ukraine will become tougher in the near future. Especially Petro Poroshenko recommended strengthening them in the eastern regions.
By the way, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, more than 3.5 million Ukrainians are currently staying in Russia.
