Then it is mandatory to draw up a special document that allows you to increase the length of stay. It is called a residence permit and is issued for 3 years. However, for residents of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions. an exception has been made. They have the right to stay in Russia for 180 days. This was made possible thanks to a decree of the Government of the Russian Federation.

Rules for the stay of Ukrainian citizens in the Russian Federation

Only after it can you obtain a work permit. Also note that starting in the summer of 2019, the cost of a patent for work will increase.
Now Ukrainians are no longer an exception. Without a residence permit, they will be able to stay in the Russian Federation for no more than 3 months. Residents of the LPR and DPR have the right to stay in Russia for 180 days. Then staying without receiving the relevant document entails the imposition of an administrative fine.
The changes also affected migration registration. It was simplified for citizens of Ukraine, having a visa-free entry and exit regime on the territory of the Russian Federation. Employees of the migration department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs say that now Ukrainian citizens do not even have to directly contact officials.
