MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Sergei Zheleznyak, the deputy speaker of Russia’s State Duma lower house of parliament from the ruling United Russia party, has dismissed Ukraine’s gender and age restrictions for the Russians seeking to enter its territory as absurd. They show “the competence” of those claiming authority in that country, he said.
Ukraine’s State Border Service confirmed on Thursday it was introducing restrictions for entry to the country by citizens of the Russian Federation aged 16-60. The notification was forwarded earlier to the Russian airline Aeroflot. The same restrictions apply to the citizens of Ukraine registered in Crimea and in the federal city of Sevastopol.
Zheleznyak said, “This indicates once again that the decisions of those who have seized power in Kiev have nothing to do with democratic principles, rights and freedoms.”
“The mere absurdity of gender and age restrictions on entering the country we have been presented with demonstrates also the level of professionalism of those who claim authority in Ukraine,” he told ITAR-TASS, adding that he felt sorry for Ukraine’s citizens.
