This was stated by Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin. He said that the possibility of the introduction of biometric visas for Russian citizens in the future. According to the Minister, biometric control at border crossing points with Russia would be an effective measure.
“We are creating a data Bank, we understand that there may be manipulation, as you can see, a well-known history of poisoning Skipala — identity change, etc If there is biometric data, we know what kind of people are we talking about, and just document change will not help”, — said Klimkin.
He added that for entry into Ukraine, the Russians will also have to provide a preliminary inquiry or, as a minimum advance notification that they were going to Ukraine.
“It is possible that we need to look at their movement on the territory of Ukraine”, — said the Minister.
He said that at the moment such control of the movements of the Russians on the territory of Ukraine “is partial”, namely, “for the part of the persons against whom there are suspicions”.
“But the track is all, of course, quite difficult. But in the long term, how will it work, you need to analyze. Common visas with Russia won’t help us. Then if it’s not effectively, you will need to think about the introduction of biometric visas,” — concluded the Minister.
