Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has had a conversation with his Danish counterpart Jeppe Kofod. It was reported by the Ministry’s press service, UATV informs.

Kuleba drew attention to Russia's attempts to manipulate the COVID-19 pandemic in order to get sanctions against it lifted on.

This is manipulation because the EU has imposed sanctions not because of a coronavirus, but because of Russia's aggression against Ukraine. Accordingly, they can only be related to Russia's fulfillment of its obligations in the context of the peaceful settlement and de-occupation of the Ukrainian territories of Donbas and Crimea,” Ukraine’s MFA stressed, urging his Danish counterpart to convey these reservations and Ukraine's position to other EU countries.

Kuleba also asked Kofod to assist the citizens of Ukraine who were in Denmark with the evacuation to their homeland.

As we reported earlier, on March 27, the Ukrainian government will close any passenger movement across the border of Ukraine.

Such a decision is caused by the significant increase in the number of people infected with Covid-19.
