Ukraine to step up control over the state border


Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed a bill into law to amend certain legislative acts on state border security, which steps up control over the state border and introduces a 10-year travel ban for the violation of Ukraine's border crossing rules.
“The implementation of this legislative act will enable [the border service] to effectively handle administrative violations on the state border of Ukraine, in controlled border areas, at entry/exit checkpoints [at the contact line with ] temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine," the presidential press service said on 26 April. The law also improves measures taken by the State Border Guard Service to counter illegal migration on the state border and other offenses in the border areas.
