KIEV, February 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s cabinet of ministers announced on Tuesday Kiev will introduce a ban on entering the country on internal documents for Russian citizens starting March 1.
Since next month, Russian citizens will be only allowed to enter Ukraine using their foreign passports. Besides, holders of diplomatic and service passports, as well as seaman's identity cards and flight certificates, will be allowed into the country.
Ukraine also bans Russian children under 14 from travelling to the country on birth certificates, which was earlier allowed under a 1997 bilateral agreement on visa-free trips. The relevant decision was published on the website of Ukraine’s government on Tuesday.
