Citizens of the Crimea, who have received Russian passports, will not be allowed to the territory of Ukraine, the chief of the department of border control and registration in the administration of the State Border Service of Ukraine, Alexander Zhdanenko said.
Such ID will not be valid to the Ukrainian government, as Ukraine does not recognize the legitimacy of the Crimea as a subject of the Russian Federation. The prohibition of entry to Ukraine will affect those, who tries to cross the border by car or through the Kerch Strait, TASS reports.
However, despite limitations for the Crimeans, other Russians may enter the territory of Ukraine on both internal and foreign travel passport.
