    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia could introduce visa regime with Ukraine only on the principle of mutuality.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia will respond in kind should Ukraine introduce visa travel for Russian citizens, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

    "We said quite consistently that such actions as a rule receive a reaction based on the principle of mutuality," Peskov told reporters. "Therefore, there is nothing new here, but of course we can say that there will be a response."
