The Cabinet of Ministers supported the proposal of President Volodymyr Zelensky to introduce a visa regime for Russian citizens from July 1  .

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced this on his Telegram channel.

“We are finally breaking ties with Russia. To counter the unprecedented threats to national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity of our state, the government, in pursuance of the instructions of the President of Ukraine, has just decided to terminate the agreement with the Russian Federation on a visa-free regime,” Shmyhal stressed.

The head of government noted that the Russians will not be able to enter Ukraine without obtaining a visa.

The decision comes into force on July 1.

As UNIAN reported, today, June 17, the head of state suggested that the Cabinet of Ministers work out the issue of revising the regime for the entry of Russian citizens into Ukraine. It was about the approval of the resolution “On the termination of the agreement between the Government of Ukraine and the Government of the Russian Federation on visa-free travel for citizens of Ukraine and the Russian Federation and the application of certain international treaties between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.”
