President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced he is going to give an order to the State Border Guard Service not to let Russian observers to the presidential elections on March 31. He explained that this way he wants to physically prevent Russians from coming to Ukraine as observers from the international organizations.

The Verkhovna Rada registered the bill No.9524 which calls for ruling out the participation of the observers from the aggressor state in the presidential and parliamentary elections in Ukraine.
