Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy proposed to resume the discussion on expansion of sanctions against Russia and to introduce the visa regime with the aggressor-country, according to UNIAN.

Parubiy said that in early 2016 he had made a draft resolution to Parliament on appeal to the Cabinet of Ministers on termination of the agreement between the governments of Ukraine and Russia on visa-free trips for citizens.

“Probably it makes sense to raise the issue today and get back to the introduction of visa regime with the Russian Federation,” said the speaker of Parliament.

Moreover, he proposed to discuss the issue of expanding sanctions against Russia.

“It is the competence of the Verkhovna Rada, and I think we should consider the question of expanding sanctions against Russia,” Parubiy concluded.
