"From March 1, 2020, the border crossing with the Russian Federation will be carried out on the basis of a foreign passport, but only for citizens of Ukraine traveling from Ukraine to the territory of the Russian Federation," the statement said.

It is noted that the time taken for border control is also reduced. To verify a person’s data, passport information is read by special devices.

"Upon entry of Ukrainian citizens from the territory of the Russian Federation to the territory of Ukraine, the State Border Service of Ukraine will unhinderedly pass Ukrainian citizens on internal passports and birth certificates," Honcharuk added.

As we reported before, Alexey Pivovarov, editor-in-chief of the international Russian-language television channel RTVi, was denied border crossing at the Kyiv airport (Zhulyany) due to the fact that he could not prove the purpose of his stay in Ukraine
