CHISINAU, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Moldovan authorities informed republican citizens about Ukraine’s introduction of tougher border-crossing rules for people going to Ukraine. “According to changes a person arriving in Ukraine should have financial provision of 4,060 Ukrainian hryvnas (about $500),” the republican Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Natalia Gherman turned to Ukrainian counterpart Leonid Kozhara for explanations over current situation and asked to cancel these rules for Moldovan citizens, the ministry’s statement said.
Moldovan citizens began to experience problems over Ukrainian border crossing back on the previous week, after Ukrainian border guards began to not only ask them about the purpose of their trips, but also question them. Over this problem, long queues lined up at border checkpoints and the number of denials for travelling groups of more than five people went up.
