Start of Visa Regime for Russians

On July 1, the law on the requirement of visas for Russians who will cross the border of Ukraine, signed on June 17, entered into force

The law On termination of the agreement between the government of Ukraine and the government of the Russian Federation on visa-free travel for citizens of Ukraine and the Russian Federation and application of certain international agreements between Ukraine and the Russian Federation entered into force today. Thus, today one more crime has been added to the list of crimes of all occupiers who are on the territory of Ukraine — staying on the territory of independent and sovereign Ukraine in violation of the visa regime.

According to the law on the visa regime with Russians, it is possible to cross the border of Ukraine exclusively through interstate checkpoints, with international passports, and on the condition of having a previously obtained visa.

"Within the framework of countering unprecedented threats to the national security, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of our state, Volodymyr Zelenskyy proposed to the cabinet of ministers to work out the issue of revising the regime of entry of Russian citizens into the territory of Ukraine."

Russians who have a burning desire to see how people live in progressive countries can get visas through VFS Global. Yes, it is the intermediary company because there are no Ukrainian consulates in Russia since the beginning of the war. Only those Russians who are not included in the sanctions list and who do not threaten national security will be able to touch the beauty.

"We are finally severing ties with Russia," Denys Shmyhal.

Glory to Ukraine!
