Press conference of Volodymyr Zelensky "30 Questions to President of Ukraine"

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has responded to a petition proposing to ban Russian citizens from entering the country. This is stated on the website of electronic petitions.

The head of state noted that with the beginning of the Russian aggression, the control over the entry of Russians has already been strengthened. In particular, Zelensky recalled that in 2015, Kyiv unilaterally abolished the possibility of entry of Russian citizens on the basis of a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation or a birth certificate. After that, entry is possible only with diplomatic, service and foreign passports.

In addition, since 2018, Ukrainian border guards have begun recording biometric data of foreigners, including Russian citizens. In case of suspicion, border guards can additionally analyze foreigners, and if there are grounds - to prohibit them from entering Ukraine.

At the same time, the President noted that the current travel regime with Russia requires careful study. According to Zelensky, he sent a petition to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danylov and the Head of the Security Service Ivan Bakanov with a request to analyze the entry regime.

As we reported earlier, not so long ago, President Volodymyr Zelensky responded to a petition by TV presenter and producer Ihor Kondratyuk regarding a complete ban on concerts by Russian artists until the return of the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas.
