Russia will not assume tit-for-tat measure against Ukraine’s decision to ban entry to the state for male Russian citizens aged from 16 up to 60. Maria Zakharova, the spokeswoman of Foreign Ministry of Russia made such statement as Interfax reported.
“Concerning Ukraine, not country but the regime, which governs the country, then talks about tit-for-tat measures are scary because if someone tries to repeat the things happening in Kyiv then it can lead to the madness. And if we talk about the national scale then to the collapse,” Zakharova said.
Russia’s representative thinks that the “backflips” happening in Kyiv and Ukraine are “complete dysfunction of the political system of the state, which is the result of the wild movements of the country’s leadership”.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine has banned the entry to its territory for the male citizens of Russia in the age from 16 up to 60. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko proposed to tighten the rules of the registration in Ukraine for the Russians.
Earlier it was reported that only citizens of Ukraine will be able to get to annexed Crimea through the administrative border in Kherson region.
As we reported earlier, the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy acted aggressively against the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov.
Given the tough situation in the area of Kerch Strait in the Sea of Azov, President Petro Poroshenko supported the offer of Ukraine's national security and defense council; it stipulates that the Ukrainian Parliament should consider the option to impose the martial law in Ukraine.
On November 28, the Uriadovy Kurier, the official outlet of the Ukrainian Cabinet, published the presidential decree No.392, which activates the decision of the National Security and Defense Council in Ukraine about the 30-days-long martial law in Ukraine.
