"This bill [on the identification documents that confirm the citizenship of Ukraine and give the right to exit and enter Ukraine] has been approved by the government, and on Wednesday it will be sent to parliament," he told reporters in Kyiv on Wednesday, February 15.

According to Lavrynovych, the document stipulates that foreign passports have to contain the citizen’s photograph, signature and the prints of two fingers.

The minister added that the fingerprints will be used in foreign passports only, and this does not refer to other documents.
