Russian citizens should not wait for new restrictions on entering Ukraine yet. Such conclusions can be drawn from the response of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to the demand to close the borders of Ukraine for Russians. The document was published on the president's website.

A petition proposing to completely ban the entry of Russian citizens into Ukraine was initiated by a Ukrainian politician, head of the Odessa cell of the Right Sector (Right Sector organization, recognized as an extremist organization, banned in Russia ) Sergei Sternenko. On November 11, it became known that the petition received the necessary 25 thousand votes for its consideration by the President of Ukraine.
