They underwent body temperature screening and were asked questions about their health, it said.

"There were no individuals with fever or symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections," it said.

All but one person who arrived on that day chose to follow the quarantine restrictions with the use of the Dii Vdoma GPS tracking app.

After employees of the State Border Service checked the passengers' registration in the app, the latter were sent for self-isolation at the indicated addresses for two weeks.

One passenger from Goa decided to spend the quarantine period at a specific observatory facility.

"In general, passenger traffic at the state border remains quite low. Over the past day, employees of the State Border Service handled fewer than 13,000 people for entry and exit," the agency said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier announced that evacuation of citizens by special flights from abroad will take place step-by-step, in a controlled manner, with up to four flights per day.
