Ukraine closes borders: neither foreigners nor Ukrainians will be allowed into the country
President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky announced the complete closure of borders for passenger traffic. Even Ukrainian citizens will not be allowed to pass, reports Air force.
“We are acting as tough as is required today and the challenges of the future. That is why until the end of Friday, March 27, the state border will be closed and all passenger traffic will be stopped, ”Zelensky said.
The restrictive measures currently in force in Ukraine prohibit only regular passenger transport, but Ukrainian citizens can still return to the country, including those whom the state returns from other countries on an emergency basis.
"We have no time to wait"
“Two weeks ago, I asked the Ukrainians to return urgently. Most of them did it on their own, about 80 thousand others we returned home by plane and train. But today we no longer have time to wait. We were faced with a choice between the safety of citizens still abroad and the safety of 40 million citizens inside the country, ”the President explained.
According to him, the diplomatic missions of Ukraine and the Ukrainian community abroad will take care of those who will not be able to return in the near future.
“We will not forget about a single Ukrainian who will not be able to return in the coming days. Gradually, everyone will be returned home, but taking into account the epidemiological situation at the place of your stay, as well as the possibility of your mandatory isolation, ”Zelensky said.
In Ukraine, according to the latest data from the Ministry of Health, 156 cases of 2019-nCoV coronavirus infection were recorded, 5 people died.
