MOSCOW, March 20, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine demands that visitors from Russia confirm having at least 600 dollars on them when entering the country. Russians also have to state the purpose of the trip, their itinerary, and place of sojourn, an official at the Rostov region's Ministry for Regional and Information Policy told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday March 19.
Ukrainian border guards have denied entry into Ukraine to 1,500 Russian citizens wishing to cross the border from the Rostov region since the beginning of March, Alexander Titov said.
He noted that all the 23 border checkpoints were operating in usual mode, but that the time of crossing has increased dramatically due to the time-consuming border and customs procedures introduced by Ukraine.
Meanwhile, two-way flow of persons, vehicles and cargoes tends to decrease. The regional department of Russia's Federal Migration Service said more than 550,000 Ukrainian citizens have crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border in the Rostov region since the beginning of the year, and that about 1,000 of them have completed migration registration. Russia's Rostov region borders on Ukraine's Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
The Russian Border Service told Tass that the border-crossing regime on the Russian side had not changed.
