Due to "support troops," which, as the new Ukrainian authorities believe, travel from the Russian Federation, the Russian-Ukrainian border can be closed.
The question to either block the border between Ukraine and Russia or impose restrictions for crossing it was raised by Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Anatoly Yarema.
According to him, the people for pro-Russian meetings arrive from the Russian Federation. Residents of the Belgorod region of Russia took part in the beating of Euromaidan activists in the city of Kharkov, Yarema said.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin stated that the new Ukrainian government is focused exclusively on the nationalist vector, while Russia wants to avoid both war actions and violation of sovereignty of a foreign state.
