"The border guards of the Kyiv separate checkpoint met almost 700 Ukrainian citizens who arrived by these airplanes. The guards carried out temperature screening of each passenger. No persons with fever were found. Also, none of the passengers complained about their health", the message said.
All passengers, without exception, installed the “Act at home” mobile application and pledged to be self-isolated at the addresses indicated in it. In total, over the past day, border guards worked with 13500 citizens for entry and exit.
As we reported earlier, according to Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine will not send its citizens to work abroad during the coronavirus pandemic.
“There is a request from the international partners but the government of Ukraine is guided by, first of all, security reasons and health of our citizens. In terms of the pandemic, any travel is the exposure to infection, especially, when it is a plane journey,” he said.
However, it was noted that the Ukrainian government was ready to work constructively and it was ready to reconsider the ban for leaving the country.
