Ukraine has told its citizens not to visit Russia and warned any Ukrainians already there to leave immediately.
"The foreign ministry recommends that citizens of Ukraine refrain from any trips to the Russian Federation, and those who are in this country to leave its territory immediately," a statement says (in Russian).
It says the "intensification of Russian aggression against Ukraine" means it won't be able to offer consular assistance to Ukrainians in Russia.
The move could affect several million Ukrainian nationals who are estimated to live in Russia.
