The members of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine weigh their chances to introduce visas for Russian citizens.

As reported by Censor.NET, People's Front faction MP Andrii Teteruk said on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"In my opinion, the next strategic issue to be resolved in the parliament right after Ukraine receives visa-free travel [to the EU] is the introduction of visa requirements for the Russian Federation... The introduction of visas will be an adequate response of the Ukrainian authorities to all the aggression that has been underway over the past years," he said.
