On February 11, 2022, a petition to introduce a visa regime with an unfriendly country was published on the president's website. The document passed a long vote, from the opinion of people to the word Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The petition, which was created by the Ukrainian Mykyta Mazura, gathered 27.000 votes from ordinary people. This means that the document was submitted to the president of Ukraine for consideration. On 24 May, the head of state agreed to the proposals made in the document. This became known from the reply of Zelenskyy on the website of the office of the president. 

"I thank all who have joined this petition for their active citizenship. Against the background of full-scale Russian aggression the issue raised is important and urgent, therefore, the need to strengthen the control regime for the entry of Russian citizens into the territory of Ukraine I support," the leader's word-for-word response.

The petition on the introduction of a visa regime in Ukraine for citizens of Russia has been submitted for further elaboration and consideration. Now the official development of the document and its implementation will be carried out by the highest executive body headed by prime minister Denys Shmyhal.
