UKRAINE-BORDER
Ukraine introduces "certain restrictions" on Russians crossing the border into Ukraine

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 10:43 AM EDT
KIEV, Ukraine


Ukraine is introducing stringent checks for Russian citizens who want to cross the border into Ukraine.

Russia's flagship Aeroflot said Thursday that Ukrainian officials told the airline that Russian men between 16 and 60 are now banned from entering Ukraine except when they are traveling with family or to funerals of relatives there.

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.
