The introduction of a visa regime with Russia will work to protect Ukrainians and create an additional barrier RF in her behavior towards Ukraine. This position was expressed by MP from the “popular front” Andrew Teeruk the TV channel “112 Ukraine”.

“I would like to thank our diplomatic corps, which is working well in recent years and defends Ukraine on the external front. In the UN resolution on Crimea, where Russia recognized the country-occupier, it is very important, and our territories are temporarily occupied. The measures, which are now handled by our diplomatic corps, they are useful for Ukraine, to protect, first and foremost, all citizens of Ukraine. So I think that this step (the introduction of a visa regime with Russia – ed.) is very important and it will work well for the protection of Ukrainians, and it will be an additional barrier against Russia and its behaviour towards Ukraine. I therefore welcome to us as soon as possible entered all those modes and I believe that this will lead to strengthening of positions of Ukraine,” – said Teteruk.
