Ukraine to coordinate its actions with European partners while opening borders – MFA Ukraine
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said Ukraine will coordinate its actions with European partners while opening the borders.
"We are absolutely liberal in this issue, but we will take into account two factors: the first is how the partners open [borders], and the second is the real situation with the pandemic in Ukraine. But no one is going to keep Ukrainians under lock and key, and there are no such ideas," he said in an interview to the RBC Ukraine media outlet.
As UNIAN reported earlier, checkpoints across the state border were temporarily closed for international passenger rail, air and road (for buses) traffic on March 17.
Commenting on plans to restore air travel, Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Kryklii said Ukraine's actions would be similar to those of European countries. Yet, he said, the situation might vary by region depending on the epidemiological situation.
