Viral curtain: which countries can Russians still fly to
Day by day, the international news feed is filled with sad news due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus. The government of each state strives to protect residents from disease. Therefore, many countries are closing their air, land and sea borders. However, there are also such places on the globe to which one can fly away and not face infection and various prohibitions.
Banned: which countries cannot the residents of Russia get to?
For Russians it is no longer possible to travel to the European Union, since the borders of the Schengen area are closed for the next month. Also, the authorities strongly recommend abandoning flights to North Korea, China, Iran and the United States in the near future. Russia, in turn, prohibits foreign citizens from entering the territory of the country. In the coming days, the borders will be closed by the United Arab Emirates and the Dominican Republic. Cyprus, Georgia, Turkey and Latin America have already done so.
It will not work to make a trip to Ukraine, as the neighboring country decided not to let foreigners into the territory. Getting to Moldova by train will now also not work: Russian Railways has suspended railway communication with this state. Earlier, trains to Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic were banned, according to the company's official website.
Yesterday it became known that previously safe Montenegro refuses to let about a thousand Russians home. A number of airlines cannot make scheduled flights, so tourists are forced to temporarily stay abroad. So it is clearly not worth flying to Montenegro now.
