KIEV, April 8. /TASS/. Ukrainian government has introduced new regulations for Russian citizens’ sojourn on the territory of Ukraine.
"As of April 7, a Russian citizen can stay on the territory of Ukraine for no more than 90 days within a period of 180 days as of the date of his or her first entry," a representative of Ukraine’s State Border Service told TASS on Wednesday.
Citizens who violate this rule may be denied an entry of the country, while overstaying the permitted period may entail administrative responsibility.
Kiev said earlier a decision on changing the rules for the Russian citizens’ sojourn in Ukraine was a response to the imposition of the same regulations on the Ukrainians entering Russia. Moscow altered the regulations as of January 1, 2014.
However, at the end of January 2015 Russia’s Federal Migration Service decided to prolong the Ukrainian citizens’ sojourn period "proceeding from humanitarian considerations."
Officials at the Federal Migration Service said these regulations applied to all the citizens of Ukraine and were not linked to requests for getting whatever specialized status, including the refugee status.
To prolong the authorized stay in Russia, a Ukrainian citizen is expected to file an application with a local branch of the Federal Migration Service supervising the place where he or she is staying.
