Zelensky orders end of visa-free entry for Russians

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky ordered on Wednesday the end of visa-free travel for Russian citizens.

"Against the backdrop of full-scale Russian aggression, the issue raised is important and vital. I support the need to strengthen controls on the entry of Russian citizens," Zelensky announced. The Ukrainian president asked Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal to take steps to enforce the decision.

In April, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced visa restrictions for citizens of "unfriendly" countries, among which was Ukraine.
