Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council said on July 10 that it would introduce new, stricter rules for Russian citizens crossing the national border and living in the country, and also allocate more funds to enhance cyber security and defense in 2017.

Starting from Jan. 1, all foreign citizens crossing Ukrainian border will have to undergo biometric checks, unless they are from countries that have agreements with Ukraine that such checks are not required, the council’s chairman, Oleksandr Turchynov, said at a briefing on the evening of July 10.

In particular, the biometric checks will include mandatory fingerprinting, he added.
