This was announced by Party of Regions deputy and the author of the law on biometric passports, infamous conman Vasyl Hrytsak, reports TSN.
"The internal passport will cost about 65 hryvnia (12 USD), and the biometric passport for foreign travel will cost about 350 hryvnia (45 USD)," said Hrytsak.
Sponsor of the bill said that in order to obtain an internal biometric passport you will need to go to an organization that issues passports. There you will need to provide all the necessary data and file an application that you provide the personal data voluntarily.
"A child is born and a photo can be taken when he is in his mother's hands and the child receives an internal passport and automatically becomes a citizen of Ukraine," he said.
Hrytsak is convinced that Ukrainian companies will produce biometric passports, apparently hoping that the order will go to EDAPS (which he owns).
Earlier President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych signed the Law "On the Unified State Register of demographic register and documents that prove citizenship of Ukraine, of identity or its special status."
