Ukrainian Frontier Guards in current year refused to give Visa to more than 10 thousand citizens of Russia. Head of State Border Guard Service Viktor Nazarenko said this in his interview to “Interfacs-Ukraine”
“During 2014 we denied Visa to nearly 15,5 thousand Russians. In this year - approximately 10 thousand. To my opinion, such a difference in numbers happens because people see inability of so-called “russkii mir” (Eng: Russian world”)"
He paid attention, that because of right actions of frontier guards they “lowered number of Russians willing to come to Ukraine. Especially those of young age and strong body type”.
He added, since the beginning of the year they refused to give Visa to 46,173 thousand people. About 10 thousand among them are Russians.
