Ukrainians, who stay in Egypt and cannot return home due to the termination of the air traffic, should wait until the end of the quarantine in some hotels, where coronavirus was spotted as 112 Ukraine reported citing Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Krykliy.
“We will return everyone. There are particular cases; there are a few hotels, where the quarantine is imposed, there is a different situation. The consulates are in touch with the citizens; it will be reported later. There, unfortunately, the observation of the quarantine regime should take place,” Krykliy noted.
He also urged the air carriers to return passengers to whom they sold tickets.
“Dear air carriers, if you sold the tickets, you should return the passengers. We will return them anyway. But in case if return them at our own expense, we will file applications to compensate the cost,” Krykliy stated.
Earlier, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba stated that the evacuation of Ukrainian citizens from Egypt has officially begun.
As we reported earlier, 750 citizens of Ukraine are currently quarantined in Egypt due to the suspicion of coronavirus.
