The president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the law prescribing criminal penalty for the citizens of Russia violating rules of entrance on the territory of Ukraine. It is reported on the official site of the Verkhovna Rada. The law makes changes to article 332 of the Criminal code of Ukraine. According to new rules, crossing of border of Ukraine out of the Ukrainian check points and also entry into the country without certificate or with counterfeit documents will be punished by imprisonment for a period of up to three years. For the repeated entrance or departure made by a group of persons, threatens Russians from three to five years of prison. Also punishment is prescribed for visit by Russians of the Crimea which Ukraine considers, and the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics. It is reported that the law extends to the persons driving with the purpose to do harm to the interests of Ukraine, those to whom entry into the country and also to representatives of armed forces or other security agencies is forbidden. What is meant infliction of harm to the interests of Ukraine — in the law isn't specified. On October 18 deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine have voted for acceptance of changes in the Criminal code of the country about responsibility for the Russian citizens for illegal crossing of the Ukrainian border. In favor of the bill 243 members of parliament have spoken at minimum necessary 226. It is not the first case of the restrictions imposed by Ukraine on Russians. In August the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada has suggested to introduce visas to citizens of Russia. "Because the frontier guard can't estimate in five minutes, the person with good or bad intentions goes" — the deputy has explained the initiative.
