Russia may introduce visa regime for Ukraine, RIA Novosti reports citing Valentina Matviyenko, speaker of the Federation Council, as saying. However, Moscow hopes that Kyiv will change its ‘destructive course in relations with Russia.’

“With regard to whether or not visa regime will be introduced - let's consider what Ukraine is doing. Will they realize what they have done and will they care about their national interests and interests of their citizens instead of those of the International Monetary Fund, as well as following orders from the US,” she said.
