Russian authorities will apply restrictive measures to Ukrainians violating the period of stay in this country, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry reported.
“Since December 1, the citizens who violated terms of stay in Russia and failed to process relevant documents, can fall under a number of restricting measures, including the ban to enter the Russian Federation”, said the statement by the Ministry.
The Foreign Office recommended Ukrainians who currently stay in Russia to abide by the rules of employment and preservation of legal status in this country and to timely file all documents that are necessary for residence and employment in Russia.
Since January 2014, Russian law foresees the temporary period of stay for foreigners who crossed the border under visa-free regime. The period lasts for 90 days of stay throughout 180 days. Since November, all Ukrainian citizens who stay in Russia for more than 90 days without properly filed documents, were obliged to turn to Russia’s Federal Migration Service to confirm their legal status or leave the country before November 30.
