The government of Russia allowed the citizens of Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics uncontrolled by Ukraine to enter Russia as TASS reported citing the order.
The document states that Russia assumed such measures due to the closure of the checkpoints at the disengagement line of occupied Donbas and Ukraine.
The Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) is ordered to provide the holding of the sanitary and quarantine control.
As we reported, the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) made a decision to close the checkpoints at the contact line in Donbas from March 21.
Earlier, the Russian Federation closed its borders for foreigners. The restrictions do not concern accredited or appointed diplomats, their family members, drivers of international roadway connection, crews of airplanes and sea vessels, trains of international connection, members of official delegations and those who received private visas in order to bury a deceased relative who resided in Russia.
Meanwhile, the official from Czech Republic stated that the borders of the EU states might be closed for a year or two due to the spread of coronavirus.
