Earlier the Secretary of Council of national security and defence (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov called for the introduction of a visa regime with Russia.

The visa issue was raised in the middle of August, when relations between the two countries deteriorated because of the alleged detention in the occupied Crimea “Ukrainian saboteurs”. Klimkin said that if necessary, a visa regime for Russians will be introduced, but there are some “but”.
