Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba stated that as of now Ukraine is on the EU's green list; however, if the epidemiological situation in the country worsens, it may be excluded from the list as he stated during the briefing.

"As of now, Ukraine is on the EU's green list. At the same time, there is a possibility that the EU Council will decide to exclude our country from this list," Kuleba said.

He underlined that the EU makes decisions based on clear regulations and indicators, in other words, everything depends on the development of the epidemiological situation and the number of new cases of coronavirus.

Besides, Kuleba said that if Ukraine is excluded from the EU's "green" list, complete closure of borders for Ukrainians should not be expected.

"The final decision on travel is made by each EU country separately at the national level. The experience of some of our neighbors, who were excluded from the EU green list in previous weeks, demonstrates that a complete closure of borders for Ukrainians should not be expected," Kuleba said.

According to him, the Ukrainians should carefully consider the terms of crossing the border to each country.
