MPs propose to temporarily ban travel to Russia by the staff of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine, public officials and members of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. For violation of the prohibition is proposed to punish by fines or dismissal.

Restrictions will not apply to employees of diplomatic services, or if the civil servant leaves with the purpose of urgent medical treatment or participation in the burial of a close relative, confirmed by relevant documents.

In the explanatory note to the law reads that Russia can exert pressure on public servants through bribery, blackmail or recruitment for the purpose of conducting anti-state activities.

“Such persons can steal, to apply torture, to imprison, even kill. In such cases, the Ukraine could not ensure the protection of their rights”, – stated in the explanatory Memorandum.
