The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine excludes the possibility of a decision by the authorities to close the borders in connection with the epidemic of coronavirus in the world. Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko stated this on the channel "Ukraine 24", as the Korrespondent reports.
"Basically, we do not consider such an option (border closure - 112 International), like all other countries of the world do. For example, some of them are trying to take measures in certain regions and certain cities, but we do not plan to close the borders," Prystaiko said.
At the same time, significant strengthening of the border control is provided.
The Foreign Minister recalled that tens of thousands of people have already been checked by Ukrainian border guards.
As we reported before, in Italy, the coronavirus epidemic claimed the lives of 21 citizens, while 821 people were infected. Emergency commissioner Angelo Borrelli announced this in Rome.
