Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba instructed the ambassadors to the European Union to actively work on the issue of lifting entry restrictions for Ukrainians. He announced this during a government meeting.

Kuleba noted that the EU recommends that its countries open borders to Ukrainians, in particular because the number of people infected with coronavirus in Ukraine has decreased.

However, he added that the EU ambassadors only recommended that the EU countries open borders to Ukrainians but each of these countries will decide for themselves whether to open their borders to Ukrainian citizens or not.

"The EU decision is a recommendation to the member states. Now each EU member state will consider the issue of including Ukraine in its national 'green list' and determining its entry conditions. I have already instructed all Ukrainian embassies in the EU to work actively with our European partners in order to include Ukraine in the national 'green list' of a particular country, considering simplifying entry conditions as much as possible," the minister said.

As it was reported earlier, on July 14 it became known that the EU decided to add Ukraine to the list of countries for which restrictions on EU entry should be lifted. The list should be officially updated tomorrow. Now it also includes Moldova, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
