Rada to consider ban on free travel with Russia

Oct. 6, Verkhovra Rada is slated to consider the bill to impose visas for travelers to/from Russia of Ukrainians and Russians.

In line with the bill, Rada will recommend the cabinet to cancel the 1997 agreement between Ukraine and Russia on free travel as such that is fraught with risks to the national security of Ukraine during the armed aggression of Russia.

The bill was triggered off by the recent arrest in Russia of a Ukrainian journalist whom Russians describe as an SBU colonel.

There are over 1.5 millin emigrant Ukrainian workers in Russia.
