Ukraine might witness huge migration wave from Russia, - Turchynov
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council supports introduction of the visa regime for Russia
“Back in 2014, the Council charged the Cabinet to introduce the visa regime for Russia. In my opinion, he government had enough time to prepare for that. Now it’s the time to decide”, the official said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
According to him, the visa free regime will allow to protect Ukraine from those who come to this country for purposes of sabotage and reconnaissance.
“Besides, Russia quickly depletes its assets to strengthen its military potential; meanwhile, the prices for oil and gas go down, the economic sanctions against Russia are working, and the management crisis, which is typical for all authoritarian and totalitarian regimes, only hastens these destructive processes. The time will come, and we’ll witness a huge migrant wave from Russia to Ukraine. So, better safe than sorry, I’m sure”, Turchynov said.
Previously, the Foreign Ministry reported it developed proposals to introduce the visa regime with the Russian Federation. However, in March 2015, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that the government wouldn’t immediately bring this initiative to life.
Head of parliamentary faction of Batkivschyna party Serhiy Sobolev added that Ukraine wouldn’t introduce the visa regime with Russia; instead, it would consider the special regime of border crossing for Russian citizens.
