Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said Ukraine plans to lift the entry ban of foreigners imposed over the spread of COVID-19.

"Indeed, the Ukrainian government is gradually lifting restrictions imposed over the coronavirus pandemic, and we are resuming operations at border checkpoints," he said at a joint press conference with his Hungarian counterpart Péter Szijjártó in Budapest on May 29.

"The second issue that needs to be addressed is changing the rules for foreigners entering Ukraine. You are probably aware that this issue is difficult to resolve in a number of European countries, but we are determined to liberalize the procedure, and, accordingly, two elements, namely the reopening of checkpoints and allowing foreigners to cross in subject to certain rules, will let us tackle the issue and resume free movement," Kuleba said.
