The State Duma deputy of the Communist Party Valery Rashkin proposed that the Foreign Ministry should forbid the Ukrainian deputies who voted in favor of recognizing the Russian Federation as an aggressor state to enter the country, TASS reports.

"I, as the State Duma deputy, guided by the national interests, intend to request the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to forbid the Ukrainian deputies of all levels who supported this decision to enter Russia," said Rashkin. According to the communist, those who voted for the recognition of Russia as an aggressor state promote "russophobic schizophrenia" in Ukraine.

According to the deputy, "it is unreasonable to allow" the Ukrainian politicians, who accuse Russia of aggression, to visit the Russian Federation for business or political purposes. In this regard, according to Rashkin, they should be forbidden to enter Russia for not less than five years.

Rashkin expressed his hopes that his initiative will "talk sense into" the Ukrainian deputies of regional and local councils, who have yet to vote on the issue.

On January 27, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine recognized the Russian Federation as an aggressor state and called for the parliaments of other states and international organizations to do the same. Later, most of the regional councils adopted that resolution.
