 Visa regime with Russia should be implemented as soon as possible, - NSDC's Turchynov

Secretary of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov calls to implement visa regime with the Russian Federation as soon as possible.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, he told reporters before the 6th National Prayer Breakfast in Kyiv on Thursday.

"I believe this issue is not just timely, but more than timely. It needs to be implemented as soon as possible, this is for the better of the country," Turchynov said.

"We will have open entrance to Europe, so we have to build a wall in the east to protect the civilization from the Russian Federation's aggression, from penetration of hybrid provocation technologies of Russia to the West. Ukraine is the one that stands on Russia's way - probably, it's our historic mission," he explained.
