Ukraine is introducing stringent checks for Russian citizens who want to cross the border into Ukraine.
Serhiy Astakhov, an aide to the Ukrainian Border Guard Service chief, told The Associated Press he was "not aware" of the ban mentioned by Aeroflot. Still he admitted that "in the light of the anti-terrorist operation underway in this country, we are introducing certain restrictions."
Astakhov would not elaborate on the restrictions. He said Ukraine is now checking travelers more stringently but granting admittance into the country has always been decided on an individual basis.
