"An electronic pre-registration system will be implemented for Russian citizens who will travel to Ukraine," Turchynov said at a press conference after an NSDC meeting on Monday, July 10.

The NSDC also proposes that mandatory registration at the place of stay in Ukraine should be introduced for Russians.

Turchynov: Russians need to get biometric passports to cross Ukraine border"All this – biometric passports, border control, preliminary registration, control during the stay and monitoring of relocation in Ukrainian territory – should go along with a program, which should be developed by the Cabinet," Turchynov said answering journalists' questions.
